This workshop will cover the Southeastern Forests and Climate Change Secondary Module and the NEW Carbon & Climate E-Unit

Project Learning Tree® (PLT) and PINEMAP have partnered to develop a secondary module on climate change impacts on southern forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. The module is designed for use in life science, environmental science, and agriculture courses in grades 9-12, with potential use in middle school or community college courses. The Carbon & Climate e-unit was developed for grades 6-8, and is an integrated online unit provided through PLT's online portal.

There is a $20 registration fee for this workshop, and all participants will leave with a printed SFCC activity guide, access to the online SFCC portal and the Climate & Carbon e-unit. This workshop will be presented by NC PLT Coordinator, Renee Strnad.
