The THSC Event Calendar is a free service to home schoolers in Texas. We hope you like it. It is designed to help home schooling families, friends, and support groups take advantage of educational opportunities of interest to you.
For event sponsors: Your event venue must be in Texas and have a specific appeal to home schoolers. All submissions are moderated by THSC. If you don't see your event posted three business days after submission, please contact the Moderator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your submissions and interest in supporting Texas home schoolers.

The recommendation for actual class dates is that they should be listed in the event description, not in the date field.
TCI Phase I: A Complete Natural Resource Cycle
TCI Phase I: A Complete Natural Resource Cycle will be held from July 8-12, 2019, at Bugscuffle Inn in Cushing. Teacher Conservation Institute (TCI) is a summer professional development camp for teachers and other educators interested in learning about Texas forests and the benefits that they provide.
This summer workshop has been offered to educators for 28 years. Participants examine the complete life cycle of the forest and tackle concepts like succession, the interdependence of organisms in a forest ecosystem and how forest health and human health are intertwined. Field trips include a seedling nursery, certified tree farm, harvest operation, manufacturing facilities and the Texas Forestry Museum.
At each session, participants will experience a combination of hands-on activities, classroom-style sessions and field trips led by natural resource professionals. Sessions in classroom planning are led by professional educators and Project Learning Tree facilitators. Project Learning Tree curriculum is provided to all workshop attendees and is equipped with fun, engaging activities that align with state standards and that inspire their students to think critically and creatively about complex environmental issues. It helps teachers translate their TCI experience into something that they can use in the classroom. Sessions are open to all classroom teachers, non-formal educators and other adults interested in teaching youth about forestry and conservation education.
