Wildlife and Forestry Day Camp Offered in August

We wanted to make you aware of an educational opportunity you may want to take advantage of to “kick-off” the start of a new school year! Elizabeth Bruner has been a 13-year member of the Indiana County 4-H program and is culminating her 4-H career with her diamond project (equivalent to an eagle scout award), a 3-day, in person, Wildlife, Forestry, and Aquatics Day Camp at Blue Spruce Park .  August 17-19 from 8 am – 4 pm for kids ages 8-12.  Cost is $120.00 per camper unless the child is already enrolled in the 4-H program – the cost for current 4-H members is $80.  Each day will have special guest speakers, hands-on activities, crafts, snacks, and more!  Some of the fun things she has planned are making plaster casts of animal tracks, building bluebird boxes as a community service project for the park, creating fish print t-shirts, nature journaling , learning the basics of fly fishing with the local Trout Unlimited chapter, water quality testing by making an edible aquifer, exploring for macroinvertebrates in the stream, and speakers from the fish and boat commission, game commission, and SO MUCH MORE!!!
