Three different groups that benefitted from a GNRF grant that provided funding for the Teacher Workshop Stipends/Scholarships. The first group benefitting from the GNRF grant was the Teacher Conservation Workshop (TCW). Thirty teachers attended the workshop, and they learned about forest and timber management, wildlife management practices, and conservation of the state’s water resources. The second group benefitting from the GNRF grant was (OWLS). Sixteen educators attended the OWLS workshop which teachers in attendance. This week-long workshop taught the group about wildlife conservation and provided the participants conservation lessons to take back to their classrooms. Like the campers in the ACE camp, the participants travelled around the state and learned from DNR biologists about swamp and sandhills ecology, fisheries, and red cockaded woodpeckers, and the longleaf pine ecosystem. Finally, the Advanced Training for Environmental Education in Georgia (ATEEG) has been was able to sponsor several weekend-long workshops with the assistance of GNRF funding. To date, there have been two workshops that have hosted a total of thirty educators. Additional sessions planned for throughout the year.
