Summary: The Cedar Tree Foundation is interested in communicating the facts and urgency of environmental issues taught in schools in the United States by supporting organizations that provide summer professional development opportunities for current teachers. We are interested in programs which allow teachers to have an engaging hands-on environmental education experience with a cohort of other teachers, include networking and follow-up activities that support teachers in building their skills and bringing innovative and inspiring environmental stewardship education back to their classrooms in the fall. To this end, the Cedar Tree Foundation invites organizations that provide professional development opportunities for teachers who are working in the school systems to communicate urgency and cultivate stewardship around environmental problems to submit a proposal for funding. Compelling opportunities for school administrators that translate into impact in the classroom or school community will also be considered.
