The Teacher Conservation Workshop (TCW) is a four-day 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.
TCW emphasizes the importance of conservation of our natural resources, with special attention given to Georgia’s wildlife, forests, forest products and water. Participants will learn hands-on practical exercises designed to supplement their classroom curricula and student projects. Certification in Projects Learning Tree, WET and WILD is awarded at the completion of the workshop.
