Educators Exploring Forestry and Wildlife

The Annual Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop is the premier forestry and environmental education professional development event for teachers and educators in Georgia.

This workshop focuses on topics related to the benefits of forestry, including the cycle of growing trees, the utilization of trees for common consumer products and the management of trees for water and wildlife. 

Participants engage in hands-on practical exercises designed to supplement current curricula and student projects. They also receive certification in nationally recognized environmental education programs Projects Learning Tree, WET and WILD.
