Workshop Description:
The course introduces science inquiry investigations as well as other
hands-on activities for teaching about Georgia’s wildflowers, endangered
plants and habitats.

Teachers learn plant propagation methods using Wisconsin Fast Plants,
common wildflowers, and endangered plants. Teachers also learn to
transplant seedlings to raised beds on their school sites, to build a small
bog for pitcherplants and a plot for rock outcrop species. Participating
classes receive an endangered plant permit from the Georgia Department of
Natural Resources, and seeds from scientists with the Georgia Plant
conservation Alliance (GPCA). Species can be seed propagated indoors and
transplanted to an appropriate location on the school site. Endangered
species for school site propagation include Atlantic White Cedar,
Pitcherplants, and others. A variety of easy-to propagate native
wildflowers are also available to participating EPSN teachers.

 $30 registration fee is payable to Elachee Nature Science Center.

All other fees (manual, supplies, wildflower book, seeds) are covered by a
Teacher Quality grant. A $60 stipend will be provided to each teacher.
Funds are also provided to cover a substitute for one day as well as
lodging at Jameson Inn, Oakwood-Gainesville.

Lunches are also provided.

Funded by a Teacher Quality Grant.
