Camp Canopy: Discover forestry & wildlife
Camp Canopy comes to life the second week of June each year at Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum located on Leesville Lake in the picture-perfect rolling hills of Carroll County, when high school students-turned-explorers delve into our educational-yet-oh-so-fun activities and become masters of forestry and wildlife. As camp progresses over the course of the week, campers will use the knowledge and experience they gained the day before to take the next step in understanding how it all fits into the bigger picture. By the end of camp week, they’ll be experts on Ohio’s great outdoors!
Poster Contest: National Association of Conservation Districts
The annual NACD and NACD Auxiliary Poster Contest provides students from kindergarten through 12th grade the chance to have their art displayed as part of a national conservation outreach initiative. Each year, the winning posters reflect NACD’s annual Stewardship theme and highlight the work of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries and agencies to protect and enhance natural resources. The contest starts at the district level; winners advance to the state level, and then to the national level, where they receive recognition at NACD’s annual meeting. To enter the contest, you must first submit your poster to your local SWCD office. Please contact your SWCD for details on the theme and local entry deadlines.
As many of your are thinking towards the future, do not forget your local SWCD when it comes to college scholarships. Many of the counties around the state have a one-time scholarship available for those studying natural resource related degrees such as forestry, wildlife, water quality, GIS, engineering, education.
