ATLANTA—The Natural Resources Conservation Workshop (NRCW) is now accepting registration applications for Georgia’s Rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. The 2023 NRCW will take place June 11-16 on the campus of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia.
This workshop focuses on the value, protection, and conservation of Georgia’s wildlife, forestry, soil and water resources, including conservation in Georgia’s mining industry. The workshop gives students to a college campus while providing insight into careers through their counselors and instructors.
The workshop features field trips, classroom instruction, and recreational activities. Students scoring well on the workshop exam may be awarded a college scholarship. A limited number of scholarships are awarded based on exam scores and specific scholarship guidelines and criteria.
Sponsorships are available through local Soil and Water Conservation Districts for students to attend at no cost. Transportation options are also available.
Partnering agencies for NRCW are Georgia Association of Conservation Districts, Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Society, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission, Georgia Forestry Commission, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, UGA Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources.
