The Warnell School supports many outreach activities for those interested in learning about natural resources. The Warnell School offers educational opportunities for traditional K-12 teachers and students as well as those teaching and learning in nontraditional environments such as 4-H, FFA, home school groups and local nature centers. Several faculty, staff, and students are certified to teach several different Environmental Education Curricula including: Project Learning Tree, Project WET, Project WILD, the Leopold Education Project, Georgia Native Seasons, Flying WILD and the Georgia Master Naturalist Program. These interdisciplinary programs can be used to teach subjects such as math, science, and language arts while using environmental concepts. Educators from the Warnell School are available to visit your school and teach and interact with your class or lead programs here on campus. Teachers, non-traditional educators, or individuals who are just interested in furthering their own education are invited to attend Educator Workshops for any of these curricula, and learn how to take advantage of the many resources available Professional Learning Credits are often available for participating in these programs.
The Warnell School also hosts field trips for student groups wishing to learn more about our natural resources. We can work with you to develop a unique educational experience for your group! Trips to the Whitehall Forest are very popular, and students have the opportunity to visit our White-tail deer research facility and our Aquaculture labs. For those of you in south Georgia, you should also be sure to check out the Mary Kahrs Warnell Forest Education Center, in Guyton, GA.
