Ohio-specific Project Learning Tree Supplement 

Calling all who may be interested! Ohio is creating some state specific PLT materials and we'd like your input.

If you are interested in volunteering to work on this PLT Ohio-focused supplement, please send your name, background, and contact info, as well as at least one Ohio-focus area suggestion to Sue Wintering by August 9th. This may entail conference calls, digital communications, and/or regional writing sessions this fall depending on what works best for those participating.

Thanks ahead of time for all those who are interested in helping make this happen for PLT-Ohio.
