For Natural Resource 1 students will develop knowledge and skills related to production, management, and conservation. This portion of the class focuses primarily on the processes and science. Natural Resource 2 covers the impact of natural resource management. We will discuss the biological, environmental, and economic importance of natural resources. We will look at past, current, and possible management of natural resource problems. Students are expected to keep an open mind, we will be looking at all different perspectives when evaluating solutions.
Class Fee: $30
FFA Fee: $20
FFA is an integral part of any agricultural program. Every student who is not currently a member of FFA at their home high school will be registered as a member of the JATC South FFA Chapter. Each student will be required to participate in at least one (1) FFA event during the school year. These range from competitions, leadership conferences, and state conventions (most of these are held in the spring). More details of competitions and activities will be discussed as the time gets closer.

SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience):
Similarly to FFA an SAE project is integral to a student’s experience in any agriculture class. This is the experiential learning aspect of the class. Each student will develop a project within one of the five immersion categories. They will keep a record book of their time and any money spent or earned throughout their project.
