Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Nature High Summer Camp, a week-long educational camping experience offered to teenagers interested in learning more about natural resources and the local environment, is seeking applications from Utah high school students. The event is held at the historic Great Basin Environmental Education Center, located on the Manti-LaSal National Forest near Ephraim. The camp will be held July 16-21, 2012.

The camp exposes students to the activities and missions of public land managers. Specialists from federal and state agencies mentor students on-site in a variety of subjects, including forest ecology, soil science, water quality, ecosystem health, biology, geology, and help the students apply their knowledge to solve public land issues. Students also take a tour of Snow College to explore their academic options regarding natural resource careers.

Registration is $50 and includes meals, lodging and supplies. The deadline to apply is May 20. Scholarships are available.

The camp is sponsored by many federal and state agencies, including: Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Forest Service, Intermountain Region, Geospatial Service and Technology Center, Utah Association of Conservation Districts, and Snow College.

For more information, or an application, visit the website at www.naturehighcamp.com or contact Cindy Ledbetter, Environmental Specialist, Salt Lake Field Office BLM, at (801) 977-4377 or via email cledbett@blm.gov.
