PREBLE COUNTY — Attending Ohio Forestry & Wildlife Conservation Camp is an opportunity for high school students who are interested in natural resources, wildlife, and the environment. Campers spend the week exploring and learning in the outdoors, meet youth with similar interests from across Ohio, and have the opportunity to compete for and earn scholarships to Hocking College, The Ohio State University, and Ohio University. To reduce the cost of a local teen to attend Forestry & Wildlife Camp, Preble Soil and Water Conservation District is offering a scholarship to cover $325 of the $375 camp registration fee for one camper.
Forestry Camp will be held June 11-16 at FFA Camp Muskingum in Carroll County. The camp is located on beautiful Leesville Lake and is surrounded by wooded rolling hills. Eighth through twelfth graders are eligible to attend. For more information on Forestry Camp, contact the Ohio Forestry Association at 888-38-TREES, or ohioforest.org/forestrycamp.
Application forms for the scholarship being offered by Preble SWCD are available at www.prebleswcd.org or by visiting the office at 1651 N. Barron St, Eaton. Applications are due Friday, April 7, at 3:30 p.m. Call the SWCD office at 937-456-5159 with questions.
