Nebraska Youth Range Camp planned PDF Print E-mail

The Nebraska Section of the Society for Range Management (SRM) is proud to announce the 48th annual Nebraska youth Range Camp. It will be held June 13-17. The camp is open to students between the ages of 14-18 and it will be held at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp in Halsey.
The Nebraska Youth Range Camp consists of a four-and-a-half day dynamic curriculum that appeals to students with a wide array of interests including, but not limited to, rangeland management, conservation, ecology, animal science, and wildlife.
Rangelands cover nearly 50 percent of Nebraska and approximately 60 percent of the United States. These numbers convey the dominance of this land use, but recently there have been several political issues regarding the management of these rangelands. This further emphasizes the reason it is imperative to educate the youth, so they are able to become proficient and effective leaders in resource management as well as educated voters.
The students that attend this camp will be actively involved with lectures, field activities, hands-on experience, and recreational leadership and team-building activities that are led by up to 20 of Nebraska’s most respected and dedicated leaders, teachers, and professionals from various agencies, colleges, and universities.
Interested individuals can find more information, the Range Camp application, and the brochure by visiting the Nebraska Society for Range Management website at www.nesrm.org and then clicking on the Nebraska Youth Range Camp link towards the bottom of the page.
