Keith and Brenda Turner have been working overtime to come up with new activities in 2019’s Youth Summer Camp. We’ll share some of them as July approaches … imagine how much fun your children while being educated.
Says Marian University:
The Nina Mason Pulliam (NMP) EcoLab is a 55-acre outdoor environmental education laboratory located on the campus of Marian University. It provides opportunities for students to learn about lowland forest, prairie and wetland ecosystems, wildlife, native and non-native species, and water quality.
Environmental education programs have been developed with teachers’ needs in mind. Programs can range from a 1 hour expert-led hike, to a two hour program including a hike and service project to a four hour program including a hike, service project and Nina Mason Pulliam Nature Center experience. The get-your-hands-dirty service projects may vary among planting native plants, removing non-native plants or sowing seeds.The NMP Nature Center experience includes a lab activity and a variety of hands-on inquiry stations. We can also accommodate anything in-between and develop programs to address specific teacher-chosen themes.
