Alabama Forestry Foundation
The Alabama Forestry Foundation will host its Annual Teachers Conservation Workshops in Auburn July 14-17. The event covers forest ecology, forest management and the forest products industry with guest speakers, field trips, and hands-on demonstrations from the Project Learning Tree activity guides. Upon completion of the workshop, teachers become certified in Project Learning Tree and are eligible to apply for service learning grants.
The Auburn workshop has been approved for continuing education credits by the Alabama Department of Education for 40 contact hours (STI-PD 341). The workshop has also been approved as an Alabama Math and Science Technology Initiative Affiliate Program. Teachers in grades kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to attend.
The Teachers Conservation Workshop has been held for the past 44 years and has reached thousands of teachers across this state. Members of the forestry community, including landowners, loggers, foresters, paper mill workers and sawmill employes, sponsor Alabama teachers to participate in these courses. Registration is only $75. Meals, field trips, lodging and materials are included.
