Next Workshop


Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop

Mansfield /

Due to ongoing uncertainty about the COVID-19 health crisis, the Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop, the Georgia Forestry Commission, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and its partnering agencies have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop.  

The 2020 gathering would have been the 16th annual event and we were looking forward to creating many meaningful moments for our participants, educators, staff and volunteers. Unfortunately, to insure the safety of everyone involved, the session scheduled for June 15 – 19 will not take place.  

The good news is the GA TCW advisory committee has already begun work on the 2021 Workshop! We remain committed to providing an experience for Georgia’s educators to gain content knowledge and application in forestry, wildlife, and natural resources in Georgia. We look forward to having a full workshop next year!

If you have questions or concerns regarding the program, please visit gatcw.org.

The Teacher Conservation Workshop is a 5 day workshop that uses the forest as a window to environmental education. Participants will be certified in Project WET, WILD and Learning Tree curricula.

Georgia River of Words

The River of Words Project is a free program designed to help K-12 students understand their sense of place by studying a watershed in their own environment then expressing what they discover through poetry and art. The art and poetry can then be entered into a national contest.
