*Subject:* 2016 Natural Resources Conservation Workshop Announcement and
Grazing Online Tutorial now available

Happy Friday to all.  I’ve got a couple of items for you this week:

·         The application for the 2016 Natural Resources Conservation
Workshop (NRCW) is included and is also on this link:

If you are unfamiliar with this workshop, please read the web page listed.
It is a great opportunity for rising 10th through 12th grade students and
focuses on the value, protection, and conservation of Georgia’s wildlife,
forestry, soil, and water resources, including conservation in Georgia’s
mining industry.  Sponsorships may be available for the tuition but the
application needs to be completed and signed as soon as possible in order
to be eligible for the tuition to be covered  by your soil and water
conservation district as they generally have a maximum number for which
they can provide tuition.

·         The National Center for Appropriate Technology is now offering an
online Managed Grazing Tutorial; see the attached email announcement.  If
you’ve not viewed their website, take a look when you have a moment.  You
can sign up for their weekly e-newsletter;  there is a wealth of
information as well as funding/grant/learning opportunities that you will
be able to use. is the web address.

Here is to hoping for a productive (and/or relaxing depending on your point
of view J) and warmer weekend!
