Summer Ecology Camp: Camp Discovery

May 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


This year’s summer ecology camp theme is Alabama Rocks!

This year, students will learn about geology and how it shaped Alabama’s amazingly diverse geography and how that geography has effected it’s biodiversity. Campers will learn all about rocks and how they are formed through interactive games, art, and hikes using the nature center as a living laboratory.

The Kreher Preserve & Nature Center Summer Ecology Camp offers the opportunity to learn through nature in a safe and beautiful environment. Campers will experience complete, nature-based lessons covering diverse educational topics; and enjoy exercise and fresh air through hikes and time on the Nature Playground. Summer Ecology Camp is a great opportunity for your children to socialize with their peers, learn about nature and the important role it has in our lives, and see wildlife up close.
