*Teachers Conservation Workshops (TCW's) are sponsored by the Mississippi Forestry Association. This is the MFA's 50th year of presenting these awad-winning workshops. These outdoor-based workshops are fun, interactive and hands-on. Teachers will learn much about how we manage, conserve and use Mississippi's forest through a series of field trips and a limited amount of classroom work. Some of the things in which teacher will participate (depending on the workshop) are field trips to a variety of forest products industries (sawmills, pulpmills, plywood mills, pole treating mills, etc), tree farms and logging sites. Teachers will learn to ID trees and wildflowers and be introduced to timber cruising, learn about soil characteristics and learn to determine water quality by examining aquatic life, and learn about soils and indangered species habitats. I complete PLT workshop is included.
TCW's qualify for 5.0 CEU's or 3 hours college credit.
The workshop fee is $100 (Jones County Jr. College charges an extra $100 for a private room, NEMCC does not). This includes meals, housing and all supplies. CEU AND COLLEGE CREDIT FEES ARE EXTRA.
