Kids ages 8 to 12 who want to learn more about nature and then share their knowledge with others can attend the Junior Indiana Master Naturalist day camp at Ouabache State Park, June 19-23.
The day camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, and 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on Friday.
It is sponsored by the Friends of Ouabache State Park group and Upper Wabash Interpretive Services.
The Junior Indiana Master Naturalist Program provides children with hands-on opportunities to learn about Indiana’s plants, water, soil and wildlife in an outdoor setting from natural resource specialists. It also provides a way to discover environmental stewardship through volunteer service.
Class size is limited to 25 students. The fee is $70 per student. Students must register by June 9.
The standard park entrance fee will be waived for students during class.
To register, or for more information, contact Jody Heaston, DNR Division of State Parks volunteer coordinator, at jheaston@dnr.IN.gov or (260) 437-8650.
