Environmental education teacher professional development



Cedar Tree Foundation is interested in promoting the communication of facts and urgency of environmental issues to students in the United States in order to galvanize their present and future action. To that end, we are looking to support organizations providing in depth professional development opportunities for teachers. Our current interest is focused on programs engaging teachers in a skill building, hands-on environmental education experience with a cohort of peers including networking and follow-up activities to support classroom implementation to engage student action, potentially with a civic engagement component.
