What is "TCW”?
Teachers Conservation Workshop, or TCW, is a practical, hands-on conservation workshop with emphasis on forests and other natural resources. The latest information on conservation is presented in the classroom and in numerous field trips including industries, harvesting operations, management practices, and nature trails. Participants learn by demonstration and practical exercises how relevant conservation practices can be integrated into classroom work and student projects.
Instructors include professionals from Miss. State University, Miss. Forestry Commission, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Miss. Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, U.S. Forest Service, forest industries, consulting foresters and many other natural resource organizations and companies. Participants will be certified to use teaching materials of the nationally acclaimed, award-winning environmental education curriculum Project Learning Tree.
