Come build a meadow! Be a naturalist and an eco-hero! Join new friends in planting, exploring, and recording the wonders of a biodiverse ecosystem garden. Learn all about soil, weather, insects, bees, butterflies, birds, and so much more. Through games, art, and science activities, you'll document and share your experiences with fellow campers. Native-plant meadows offer essential food, shelter, and habitat for wildlife above and below the ground. During the two weeks of camp, you'll get dirty and learn to use creative methods to transofrm a section of dusty lawn into an exciting ecosystem garden - a meadow filled with native plants. You will learn how to test and adjust the quality of the soil, plant and care for native flowers, and observe and record activities at the meadow.
Come dig with us. We'll have fun being outdoors all the time. The bees, birds, and butterflies will appreciate what you do!
