Conservation Camp is a unique way for kids to get firsthand experience of what a week in the shoes of a wildlife biologist is like. At camp, students will get to participate in hands-on STEM activities, wildlife surveys, environmental monitoring, habitat evaluations, outdoor hiking through Florida ecosystems, and various live animal encounters each day. Once a week, students will also embark on an adventure to Huguenot Memorial Park for a day filled with coastal system discussions, seine netting, shelling, and swimming. Camp will run Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm at the Tree Hill Nature Center located at 7152 Lonestar Road, Jacksonville, FL 32211. Cost is $299/week with discounts for The Rattlesnake Conservancy Canebrake Members and active military. Please visit our website for more information and to reserve your spot.
