Minnesota PLT exists to advance student understanding and knowledge of forestry and natural resources by developing and delivering professional development resources for Minnesota educators.

PLT's lessons use forests as a "window on the world," where trees, land, air, water, and wildlife help students excel in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. These engaging, hands-on lessons have been developed by hundreds of educators and natural resource experts from around the country.
