About T.R.E.E.

Since 1995, Teaching Responsible Earth Education (T.R.E.E.) has provided curriculum based, outdoor earth education programs to thousands of children, parents and teachers from Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parishes.

What makes T.R.E.E. special?

While providing academic challenges, we instill a caring attitude and provide fundamental knowledge of how the systems on the Earth work. Our programs also immerse children in a safe and natural environment where they are nurtured and can develop a deep appreciation for the precious plants and animals that live on the Earth through thought provoking experiential activities. The culmination of these components creates the impetus for children to make wiser decisions on how to preserve the wonderful diversity of our natural world and to make choices to live more lightly on our magnificent, but often abused, planet.


The Earthkeepers Program covered the GLE’s we are teaching in the classroom. Most of what was covered during the Earthkeepers Program appeared on the LEAP and Benchmark Tests.
