Join us for an exciting introduction to PLT Forests of the World.  This workshop provides formal and informal educators with a series of activities to help high school students and educators gain an increased understanding and appreciation of the diversity of world forest environments, with an emphasis on the human interaction with and dependence on those environments.  We will feature time in the Museum’s very own Central American tropical forest habitat, our Living Conservatory, as well as an exploration of downtown trees, weather permitting.
