New Hampshire Project Learning Tree

"To know something about trees—about even one tree—is to know something important, something fundamental, something profound about the nature of the world and our place in it."

Grant Cycle Open for 2017 Outdoor Classroom Fund Grants!


New Hampshire Project Learning Tree, New Hampshire Audubon, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service New England Field Office, and NH Fish and Game Project HOME have joined efforts to support schools that want to achieve the benefits of nature-based studies for student development and learning. Our goals are to nurture future environmental stewards by connecting kids with their local environment and to enliven learning through nature. We have developed a common application so you need only to fill out one application to apply for available grants from all the organizations.

New Hampshire Project Learning Tree supports students and educators in projects that make a difference in helping children connect with nature.  The Outdoor Classroom Special Fund was started to honor the leadership of Esther Cowles, Executive Director 1997-2011. NH Project Learning Tree measures success in many ways.  For Esther, one of the best measures was the amount of time kids spent outdoors investigating and improving their local environment. NH Project Learning Tree boosts teachers’ skills and knowledge, builds their confidence about incorporating the natural world into their lessons and motivates them to change the way they teach their students.

Project Learning Tree grants of $250.00  will be awarded to assist in the development of outdoor classrooms on schoolyards. Grant proposals must be received by January 30, 2017
