Youth Leadership Camp: Go Green!
From Monday, 08 July 2013 -  8:30am
To Friday, 12 July 2013 - 3:00pm
Being MSU Green takes on a whole new meaning! Campers learn about sustainability and conservation while participating in leadership and communication activities. We’ll explore the KBS Pasture Dairy, hike the North Country Trail, conduct a waste audit of the Bird Sanctuary, and even create a worm bin!  Campers do their part for the planet by creating an ‘Environmental Report Card’ for the Biological Station, to be presented to the KBS Sustainability Committee. The week concludes with a campout teaching outdoor skills such as building a campfire, fishing and canoeing. This week-long adventure is great training for campers interested in becoming Jr. Counselors when they are high school freshman.

Kara Haas, the Sanctuary’s Environmental Education Coordinator, will be joined by Michigan State University Extension Educators Darren Bagley and Jan Brinn to lead the camp. Darren and Jan bring many years of experience leading youth camps throughout the state.

Monday-Friday, July 8-12. Mon-Wed: 8:30 a.m. - 3 pm, Thurs evening overnight, 3 p.m. pickup on Fri. Registration begins March 1. For cost and other information, please visit http://www.kbs.msu.edu/visit/birdsanctuary/events-calendar/summer-science-camp.
