We were excited to learn recently that the New Hampshire chapter of Project Learning Tree (PLT) is receiving new support, thanks in large part to the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association (NHTOA). PLT is an environmental education program which provides instructional materials and professional development opportunities, working with educators, parents, and community members. It is managed at the national level by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, but depends in part on state coordinators to provide its services. Over the next three years, NH PLT will become a program of NHTOA’s education foundation. We talked with Cheri Birch, NH PLT board member and the program director of NHTOA, about plans for the 2024 Forests of New Hampshire Teacher Tour, to be held this coming July at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Cardigan Lodge in Alexandria. The four-day event will include a number of educational field trips, including a visit to Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest.
