Four statewide workshops were conducted in Georgia during February and March 2006 to educate farmers, ranchers and landowners about the various conservation, wildlife and farm protection programs available to them. The workshops consisted of presentations with follow-up discussions by UGA, state, federal and non-governmental personnel. Agencies involved included: UGA, USDA-NRCS, USDA-FSA, USFS, GA Department of Natural Resources, Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission and the National Wild Turkey Federation.
Analyses of workshop evaluations revealed the following: the vast majority of attendees were non-traditional extension clientele, strongest interests were in conservation and farmland protection programs, most were amazed at the duplication and sometimes competitive state and federal programs, virtually all wanted to attend future workshops.
