The State Botanical Garden of Georgia in Athens features two conservation-based field trip programs conducted for students: Eco-Health and Connect to Protect. Session attendees will first learn how to conduct scientific studies of ecological health of soil, plant biodiversity, and insect biodiversity with students on their own site. Then, the session will review what SBG is doing through their Connect to Protect initiative to restore native habitats and protect native pollinators and how this model can be adopted in all parts of the country. Participants will leave with the Eco-Health field trip manual and Connect to Protect teacher module which includes background information, activities, and teaching resources.
