The Georgia Forestry Foundation will hold its 10th annual Teacher Conservation Workshop: ‘Exploring Forestry and Wildlife in Georgia’, June 16-20, 2014. The workshop focuses on conservation topics related to the benefits of forestry, including the cycle of growing trees, utilization of trees for products, and how trees are managed for wildlife habitat. Participants will be certified in Project Learning Tree, Project WILD and Project WET.
Teachers will receive 3 PLU’s and a $100 check upon completion of a follow-up activity.
Our sponsors and partners include many organizations and companies from the forestry and wildlife communities. As the event is underwritten by sponsors, all field trips, lodging, meals and teacher resource kits are included in a $50 registration fee. It is recommended for Georgia educators of grades 5-12, but other educators may apply. Registration is limited to 30 participants. Due to the limited space at Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center we cannot accommodate anyone other than the participants.
