Growing Where You Are Planted: Place-Based Learning with Trees

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Picture your schoolyard or nature center: does it contain any trees? Join us to learn about the opportunities that urban trees provide for interdisciplinary outdoor learning and academic growth, student health and socioemotional learning. We’ll share activities for both formal and nonformal settings and the latest research about tree benefits.
