    Project Learning Tree : Energy in Ecosystems E-Unit for Teachers of Grades 3-5. Registration fee $40/person. Includes 3 hours of CPE credits, complimentary wine and light bites, parking, and admission to the garden. Participants may remain in the garden until 8:00 p.m. after the workshop. Designed for students in grades 3-5, PLT Energy in Ecosystems investigates the ways in which organisms depend on each other to survive and thrive. Students focus on forests—one of the largest and most complex types of ecosystems—and come to understand some of the interactions present in all ecosystems. In doing so, they learn to appreciate the natural systems on which we depend and begin to widen their circle of compassion to include all of nature. Participants will earn complete access to Project Learning Tree's Energy in Ecosystems e-unit online.
