Education

Experiential learning, or hands-on learning, is a great way to engage young people!

PLT Canada offers educational resources to connect the children or young people in your life to the outdoors. Learn about the key role sustainable forest management plays in the fight against climate change, explore diverse career opportunities in Canada’s green sector, encourage critical and creative thinking, and more!

Our environmental education resources are ideal for teachers and parents who want to encourage outdoor learning and take their nature curriculum outside.

View our free eco-education worksheets and activities to connect the children in your life to the outdoors. Each worksheet asks questions to support critical thinking and provides one or more activities for you and the children to complete together.


Subscribe to our Environmental Education newsletter for access to the worksheets. Check back often for new resources to support learning about the environment for K-12! You can opt-out of the newsletter at any time after downloading the worksheets.


Guest Speakers for Educators

Educators can reach out to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) contacts below to enquire about having a forestry professional speak with their students about sustainable forest management.

SFI Implementation Committees work with forestry and professional associations, universities, government agencies, landowner groups, conservation groups, and many others to support community outreach and education programs.
