Plant Professional Certification Workshop June 22-23rd, Macon State College
 
Teachers who are registered to attend are listed below.  If you can not attend the workshop and your name is on the list please let me know asap we have a waiting list of teachers who would like to participate in this workshop.

We are looking forward to our workshop this month.  We hope to make it both informative and fun.  The dress will be business casual with comfortable walking shoes.  We will take a couple of walking tours of the MSC campus and possibly a nursery tour.  You may want to bring hand pruners, baggies, and a digital camera if you have access to one, and refillable water bottle.

We will be in Rm. 237of the Professional Sciences Center @ Macon State College. http://www.maconstate.edu/maps/
This is a link to the campus map.  The building is on the NW side of campus.

There are a number of hotels at Exit 3 on I-475 across the highway from the MSC campus but I personally recommend some of the newer hotels off of the Zebulon Rd. Exit 9. (See list below)
