“The ability to have jobs, processes, and the WET, WILD, and Learning Tree books and resources demonstrated by enthusiastic professionals was so amazing! Simply getting the books without this training would not have been half as engaging, now would I have understood so much about it.”
– 2019 TCW Participant
The Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop (TCW) is now taking applications for the 16th Annual TCW! It is with great excitement that we announce that registration is now open for a modified in-person experience for 2021! Join us for four-days, June 14-17, 2021, for an immersive professional development event that uses the forest as a window to environmental education.
In addition to networking and meeting field experts, participants are also trained in Projects Learning Tree, WET, and WILD. Participants have the opportunity to engage in hands-on, practical exercises and activities that are designed to supplement their classroom curricula and student projects.
