FAWN was held April 30 & May 1, 2019 at the Forestry Commission office. In the two-day event, 196 sixth grade students from Chatom, Fruitdale, Leroy, McIntosh and Millry schools visited seven stations where they learned about wildlife habitat, forest management, forest history, soils, Project Wild, tree identification and forest products. Each station has a presentation that lasts roughly 20 minutes in which local volunteers, industry and state/forestry agency personnel teach the students. Students are divided into groups and given different colored FAWN t-shirts to keep each group distinct. Students are rotated through each station set up along a trail to provide a hands-on, interactive learning experience.
