Colorado Project Learning Tree envisions a future where citizens of all ages understand, appreciate and responsibly care for our natural world.   We strive to accomplish this by providing science-based information, experiences, materials and activities for educators to share with their learners. Our program is a collaboration of many partners, including the National PLT staff and their national operating committee;  the American Forest Foundation; PLT coordinators and educators from around the country; federal, state and local agencies; environmental and conservation organizations; universities and camps; industries and individuals; school districts; educators; volunteers; and Colorado PLT facilitators and advisors.

Colorado adopted Project Learning Tree in 1976, and The Colorado State Forest Service, a division of the Warner College of Natural Resource at Colorado State University, uses its award-winning and highly acclaimed activities to  help achieve its mission.
