The hands-on activities facilitate the exploration of topics including communication, economics, energy and fuels, geology, government, history, recycling, transportation, watersheds, wildlife, and much more! Participants will learn about the materials through direct engagement in the PLT activities throughout the workshop.

The PLT activity guide covers it all!!! The PreK-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies). Both Secondary modules have been correlated to high school biology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Civics & Economics, and 21st Century Geography. CEU renewal credits are available and this workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program.

Please pre-register and make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. If you must cancel, please do so in a timely manner so someone else may take your place in the workshop.

A sedentary lifestyle is a growing concern in America as more and more often our lives revolve around screens. It is also becoming more of a concern for employers and the general public when preventable diseases put increasing strains on the health care system, causing insurance cost to rise. People who do not perform regular physical activity increase their risks for colon and breast cancer; becoming depressed or moody; gaining weight; suffering from a heart attack; or a compromised immune system. So get moving now! Walk, run, jog or skip your way to better health and participate in the second annual Currituck County Run @ Work Day.

Project Learning Tree: Southeastern Forests and Climate Change

September 19, 2014
9am - 5pm
Caraway Camp and Conference Center
Asheboro, NC
To Register: Renee Strnad renee_strnad@ncsu.edu 919-515-5518
Registration Deadline is September 3, 2014.

This workshop is being presented in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Southeastern EE Alliance Conference hosted by Environmental Educators of North Carolina. This workshop will be the first time this workshop has been held in North Carolina, and the facilitators are all from the University of Florida.... the students and faculty members that have been writing, leading the pilot-testing, and revising of the materials. This workshop is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! There is a $20 fee for this workshop to cover the cost of the facility and lunch. Checks can be made payable to EENC and brought with you to the workshop.

PINEMAP has partnered with Project Learning Tree to develop, test, and implement a new secondary environmental education module, Southeastern Forests and Climate Change. This module provides educators with the necessary information and resources to engage secondary students in lessons about climate change, forest ecosystems, the carbon cycle, pine tree genetics, modeling, and life cycle assessments. The module explores these concepts in 13 experiential activities that are based on PINEMAP’s interdisciplinary research. The activities incorporate technology, data analysis, critical thinking, and system-thinking skills to encourage students to understand the connections between human, biological, and physical systems.

The activities are designed for students in grades 9 through 12, though many could be adapted for middle school or college students. With its application of climate change to forest ecosystems and management, this module is intended to be used by life science, biology, agriculture, and environmental science teachers. To help educators address curriculum standards, each activity has been correlated to the Next Generation Science Standards and the Project Learning Tree Conceptual Framework.


This module is designed to help students

Understand how climate change could impact forests in the southeastern U.S.;
Understand how forests can be managed to address changing climate conditions and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
Enhance decision-making skills to make informed choices as consumers to mitigate climate change;
Develop systems-thinking skills to see connections between climate change, forests, and people;
Recognize that individual and community actions can help mitigate and adapt to climate change; and
Become part of future community conversations about climate change and potential solutions.

Once it is not longer a liquid, we will be glad to take it along with your regular household waste.

In Craven County, paint is accepted for recycling at the County Convenience Centers. Contact Craven County Solid Waste at (252) 636-6659 for more information.
