Kids ages 8 to 12 who want to learn more about nature and then share their knowledge with others should consider taking the Junior Indiana Master Naturalist day camp at Ouabache State Park this summer.
The day camp runs from July 27-31, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., 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 and Ouabache State Park.
The Junior Indiana Master Naturalist Program (JrIMN) offers hands-on learning opportunities about Indiana’s plants, water, soil and wildlife, in an outdoor setting from natural resource specialists. It also promotes environmental stewardship through volunteer service.
Class size is limited to 25 students. The fee is $70 per student. Students must register by July 23.
The standard park entrance fee will be waived for students during class.
For registration or more information, contact Neil Ainslie, Friends of Ouabache State Park, at sciencepastorneil or (260) 740-9162, or visit Ouabache State Park.
