Wild about nature
“Wild Kids Camp will be full of hands-on learning activities as we learn about migratory birds, bats, soil and plants, pollinators and more,” said Emily Grant, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Gillespie County.
Youth will create something they can bring home each day, Grant said. AgriLife Extension specialists from across the state will also share their expertise and experiences through virtual presentations, and there will be a few virtual field trips as well.
“This is a unique opportunity for kids to learn more about the natural world, the wonderful wildlife we have in Texas and their role in our ecosystem,” Grant said.
