This workshop will cover the Southeastern Forests and Climate Change Secondary Module and the Carbon & Climate E-Unit. Rebecca Ward, Extension Climatologist with the State Climate Office of North Carolina, will be a guest speaker.

 

Project Learning Tree® (PLT) and PINEMAP have partnered to develop a secondary module on climate change impacts on southern forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. The module is designed for use in life science, environmental science, and agriculture courses in grades 9-12, with potential use in middle school or community college courses. The Carbon & Climate e-unit was developed for grades 6-8, and is an integrated online unit provided through PLT's online portal.
