Chatham County Agricultural Extension Agent Debbie Roos will give an overview of North Carolina pollinators and discuss the role of native bees and managed bees in crop pollination. Participants will learn about the principles of planting a pollinator garden and how to select trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, herbs, vines, and grasses to attract a diversity of pollinators. Debbie will emphasize native plants but also include a few other plants that provide good resources. The workshop will conclude with a tour of Cooperative Extension’s pollinator garden at Chatham Mills, about half a mile from the Agriculture Building. The garden is comprised of 160 different species and cultivars, 85% of which are native to the piedmont of North Carolina.

North Carolina classroom teachers..... Are you looking for a summer professional development opportunity that will take you into forests and mills, provide hands-on experiences with technologies used in the forest industry, and provide fun networking opportunities with teachers statewide? If so, then this is the program you have been looking for!

Multiple teachers from the same school, and teachers of all disciplines and grades, are encouraged to apply! This opportunity is available only for teachers associated with a school district within North Carolina, non-formal educators do not qualify.

The Sustainable Forestry Teachers' Academy is a multi-day residential program that focuses on the social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainable forestry. Teachers will visit a variety of forests and mills learning about forest management and the manufacturing of various wood products such as paper, furniture, plywood and lumber. Teachers participate in tours and hikes in forests under a variety of ownership and management plans. Excursions to museums, state forests, experimental forests, and environmental learning centers round out the experience.

Participants should expect a fast-paced week, with extended moderate walking in wooded areas, some stair climbing, and walking on raised open catwalks in mills and production facilities. For your safety and the safety of others, please consider your ability to participate in these activities when applying for the academies. We also strive to provide great food, plenty of networking opportunities, and a fun and engaging learning environment. In addition, training in the Project Learning Tree curriculum and other extensive materials and discussions prepare participants to transfer what they have learned back to the classroom. CEU renewal credits (18-25 contact hours) and EE Certification credits will be awarded.

Meals, lodging, and transportation during the Academy are provided, however selected participants are required to submit a $50 non-refundable fee.
