Project Learning Tree (PLT): Southeastern Forests and Climate Change

Resource URL:
Description: "Project Learning Tree and the University of Florida have developed a new secondary module to help educators in the Southeast teach about climate change impacts on forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. The module explores these concepts in 14 experiential activities by using research related to the goals of PINEMAP (Pine Integrated Network: Education, Mitigation, and Adaptation Project)—a regional research, education, and extension program focused on southern pine management and climate change."
