2020 Teacher Conservation Workshop
June 15 @ 12:00 am - June 20 @ 5:00 pm$50
The Teacher Conservation Workshop (TCW) is a week-long professional development event that uses the forest as a window to environmental education. Activities are led by foresters, biologists, educators, and industry professionals. This interdisciplinary workshop focuses on the environmental, economic, and social benefits of Georgia’s forestry and wildlife communities. Sessions take place offsite and mostly outdoors in the forest and manufacturing facilities within a 2-hour radius of Charlie Elliott. Sessions demonstrate the cycle of growing trees and managing for wildlife, water and recreation.
The TCW emphasizes the importance of conservation of natural resources, with special attention given to Georgia’s wildlife, forests, forest products and water. Participants will learn hands-on practical exercises that can supplement their classroom curricula and student projects. Certification in Projects Learning Tree, WET, and WILD is awarded at the completion of the workshop.
