The Silent and Live Auctions and the raffle at the Annual Conference benefit Georgia Project Learning Tree (PLT), Georgia Tree Farm Scholarship Program and Landowner education, and the Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop.

These funds raised will help train teachers across Georgia in PLT, a national award-winning environmental education program, designed to help teachers educate our children. Children learn HOW to think, NOT what to think, by using the outdoors and hands-on activities provided by PLT. Proceeds are also used to fund scholarships for dependents of Tree Farmers. The Tree Farm Program is a program for private landowners; which certifies that the landowner is managing their property in a sustainable manner for wildlife, recreation, clean water and soil conservation while producing timber. The Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop is a week-long workshop for educators- which focuses on conservation topics related to the benefits of forestry, including the cycle of growing trees, utilization of trees for products, and how trees are managed for wildlife habitat. They are trained in PLT, Project WET and Project WILD.
