FAWN (Forestry Awareness Week Now)

Forestry Awareness Week Now is an educational program established as an outdoor classroom for all the sixth graders in Clarke County including public, private, city and home schooled students. The instructors, who are resource professionals from local agencies and timber producers, provide seven lessons, which are forest management, soils, environmental history, wildlife management, project wild, tree identification, and forest products. As the schools arrive they are divided into seven groups according to homerooms and color of t-shirts (each shirt has sponsors names) that are provided by FAWN coordinators. The seven groups are then guided by trail guides and rotated accordingly throughout the day to each station. The event is held for three days to accommodate all of the schools in Clarke County.
