The Mississippi Wildlife Federation, in partnership with the Mississippi
Department of Environmental Quality and the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council, invite you to our first annual youth camp!

Get ready for a summer to remember with Mississippi Wildlife Federation! Spend a fun-packed week at 12 Oaks Conservation Park in Ocean Springs learning about how scientists and artists work together to observe and care for our natural world. 

Ages:     9 – 12 years old
Cost:     $85 per child
Date:     July 22 – 26, 2019
Time:     8:30 am – 3:00 pm

 Campers will spend the morning inside and outside on the beautiful grounds of 12 Oaks Conservation Park learning ecology concepts through observation and documentation. We will hear from experts in understanding watershed (big picture), local coastal habitats, and wildlife (small focus). Campers will also visit the Audubon Center on the Pascagoula River for a special lesson in ecology. The afternoons will bring these ecology ideas into focus with art instruction by celebrated Mississippi artist, Robin Whitfield.
