Grant County 4-H Natural Resource Camp

July 31st, 2017

 

This year, from June 26-30, 22 students from across the state participated in the 4-H Annual Natural Resource Camp at Lake Creek Youth Camp in Logan Valley. The Natural Resource Camp, hosted by OSU Extension Service and Open Campus Faculty Didgette McCracken, is an opportunity for 7th-9th grade youth to learn about forestry, fisheries, wildlife, watershed processes, and rangeland management during a week-long camping experience. This year’s camp theme was “The Natural World and You,” and campers enjoyed five days of activities ranging from wilderness survival training to rangeland ecology. The students also participated in a summit creek walk and mountain biking adventure! A major highlight of the trip was a partnership with the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, whose members hosted a traditional salmon bake for the campers. Numerous partners worked together to make this event happen, and we are looking forward to next year’s camp already!
