Project Learning Tree - Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood

Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood provides an introduction to environmental education, encouraging children ages 3 to 6 to explore, discover and communicate in expressive ways. The guide offers over 130 experiences that engage young children in outdoor exploration and play. Topics include investigating nature with five senses, meeting neighborhood trees, and connecting with trees through the seasons.
