MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY, miss. (WCBI) – Some young people with an interest in nature get a foretaste of nature.
After a year-long hiatus due to COVID, Mississippi State Conservation Camp is back.
Over 30 students in grades 6 to 9 will get a taste of outdoor activities like fishing, along with lessons in firearms safety.
Campers will also plan in some science education as they learn their place in the ecosystem.
“It is just very important that young people are exposed to science in a different setting, where they are very practical and experiential, and get them excited about learning, and that is exactly what we are trying to do in this camp,” said Dr . Leslie Burger, warehouse manager.
The highlight of the week for many campers will be a trip to Jackson to visit the Museum of Natural Science.
