I recently visited the link "Project Learning Tree" on the Getty site.

Its a web site for teachers in k-12 who wish to incorporate environmental
lessons into their curriculums. It stresses the importance of
interdisciplinary education through activities based on pre-made lesson
plans which the teacher would receive by taking part in a free training
program sponsored in their area. This site mainly discusses the
possibilities of the program and how teachers can learn to incorporate
environmental issues into subject matter in the classroom. It gives the
addresses of local representatives of the program which has a nationwide
establishment and is backed by the American Forest Foundation and the
Western Regional Environmental Education Council. I have a sincere interest
in interdisciplinary education and feel that environmental issues should be
a major part of school programs. Has anyone on the list ever contacted this
program or taken the training course? If so I would love to here how it went
and what you think about this program.
