2018 Natural Resources Conservation Workshop

The Natural Resources Conservation Workshop (NRCW) will be held June 10-14 in Tifton, GA at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. This workshop is for rising 10th, 11th and 12th grade students where they will get the opportunity to learn from natural resource professionals on all areas of conservation, resource management, forestry, wildlife, and more. Students will stay in on campus dorms and eat in the campus dining halls. Only rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students who have not previously attended the workshop are eligible to attend. 

Students will take classes for 2 days and have a field day where they can learn and practice archery, skeet shooting, fishing and more. On the final day of the workshop they will be tested on what they have learned to have the chance to win scholarships for college. There is approximately $20,000 in scholarships to be awarded with a good possibility for students to receive at least $500. This scholarship can be used at any school in Georgia with the student studying in an area of natural resources. 

The workshop costs $175 if applications are submitted by May 1st and $200 after May 1 until June 1. This covers all costs for the workshop including food and room and board. All applications must be in by June 1st. Soil and Water Conservation Districts are sponsoring students to attend the workshop from each district. Reach out to your local district and/or NRCS office to learn more about sponsorship opportunities in your area. 

The NRCW application and additional information can be found on ABAC's website. The application has a multi-step process with an online form to be submitted first and then paper forms that will need to be turned in to the local NRCS office or to the Soil and Water District in that area. Details regarding the application, including a step by step guide, are included on the website.
