Those with a love for the outdoors have five conservation camps to take advantage of this summer offered through the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in Mississippi State University’s College of Forest Resources.
The camps are educational and intergenerational and are geared for anyone interested in the outdoors. They will be especially useful for those who participate in wildlife competitions or on Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program teams.
All five camps will be based at MSU, although campers will leave campus for activities. Food, lodging and on-site transportation are included in the fee. Each camp is limited to 25 participants, and registration closes when the camps are full. The following four camps cost $275 per person or $225 per person when a parent attends with a child.
Continuing education credits are available for teachers. For more information on these camps, contact Leslie Burger at (662) 325-6686 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration can be completed online at http://www.cfr.msstate.edu/wildlife/conservation_camp/.
The College of Forest Resources also offers the June 7-11 Natural Resources Summer Camp, geared toward high school students. The objective of this camp is to introduce students to the diverse world of natural resources and explore career opportunities in natural science and conservation. The camp costs $150 and includes food, lodging and on-site transportation.
