2014 Graduate Science Camp: A Naturalist's Academy
June 26-27 and July 24-25, 2014
Don't just show up for college. Arrive prepared!
Explore science and nature during two days of hands-on science at the 17,000-acre Edge of Appalachia Preserve System in Adams County, Ohio. Designed for ages 17-19, join us for our Graduate Science Camp and learn about local wildlife like butterflies, dragonflies, freshwater mussels, fish, land snails, birds, freshwater invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, spiders and moths.
As part of the summer camp, participants contribute to the preserve’s ATBI (All Taxa Biological Inventory), a 10-year effort to catalog every living organism on the Preserve. Some specimens will eventually become part of Museum Center’s permanent collection, so the academy covers proper museum collection techniques and documentation, too.
The Richard and Lucile Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve protects rare plant and animal species and more than 100 state endangered plants and animals. Sign up today and spend time with knowledgeable naturalists on the most biologically diverse area in Ohio (and the largest privately owned nature preserve in eastern North America, too).
