Teacher Conservation Workshop 

The Teacher Conservation workshop is a program designed to use the forest as a portal to environmental education.  Multiple hands-on activities led by biologists, educators, foresters, and industry professionals give educators an introduction into interdisciplinary ways forests provide for plant, wildlife and human communities. Many of the trips are held outdoors in locations where you can witness some of the processes taking place. Participants will also become certified in Project WILD, WET, and Learning Tree during the event.

This year the workshop is June 18-22, 2012 and will be hosted at Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center in Mansfield, GA. Participants of this workshop will receive 3 professional learning units (PLUs) and will receive a $100 check upon completion of an activity after the workshop. The registration fee is $50 which includes all lodging, meals, field trips, and teacher resource kits. Registration information can be found by going to EE in Georgia or to Teacher Conservation Workshop Registration. Registration is encouraged for educators who teach grades 5-12 but other, non-formal educators are encouraged to apply. Registration is limited to 30 participants so reserve your spot today! The deadline for registration is APRIL 30, 2012.
