The Georgia Forestry Foundation is pleased to announce its 6th annual Teacher Conservation Workshop: ‘Exploring Forestry and Wildlife in Georgia’, to be held June 21-25, 2010. 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. We will be teaming up with the Georgia Forestry Commission, UGA’s Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, and the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division to host the event at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Conference Center in Mansfield. Participants will be certified in Project Learning Tree, Project WILD and Project WET upon completion. 4 PLU’s will be available. Our sponsors 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 the $35 registration fee.
This is recommended for Georgia educators of grades 5-12. Registration is limited to 30 participants. Deadline has been extended to May 1, 2010.
