The Kreher Preserve and Nature Center, or KPNC, an outreach program of the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, will offer its weekly summer ecology camp May 31-July 1 for 1st through 4th graders and its Hungers Games camp for 5th through 7th graders.

This year’s camp theme is "Water Wonders!" Campers will learn about the water cycle and the role water plays in the natural ecosystem. Campers will explore questions such as: Where does water came from? How does water help plants to grow? And, where does water go after it rains? Campers will also explore the importance of water in the lives of animals, plants and humans, as well as the impact citizens can have on wise use and management of water resources through active and participatory nature studies, crafts, games, hikes and more.

Camps are held Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Each week a camp is offered for children per age group, in upcoming grades 1st – 7th. Registration is $110 and includes a daily snack, activities, and a camp T-shirt. KPNC membership at the Magnolia level ($35 or above) is required for registration.
