Anne Shenk, director of educational programs at the State Botanical Garden since 1985, received the Rod Nave Award from the Southeastern Association of Science Teacher Education at the group’s annual meeting, hosted at UGA in October.

She was honored for her work in collaborating with science education faculty and students on grants, educational programs and the award-winning international gardening environmental curricula “Garden Earth Naturalist” and “Our Shared Forests.” She was recognized for building an educational emphasis at the garden with workshops, field trips, family festivals, science nights, ecology clubs, environmental education camps and fundraising to support thousands of participants each year.
