The Texas Chapter of The Wildlife Society invites high school students to the best week of their summer! The 18th annual Wildlife Conservation Camp will be held July 8-14, 2012 at Camp Tyler near Tyler, Texas. The registration deadline has been extended to May 15, 2012. This camp has been opening doors for college-bound students interested in the outdoors. Regardless of their career path, campers will develop an appreciation for the outdoors, an understanding of the natural world, and priceless memories they will carry forever.
During the week-long camp, campers will enjoy interacting with wildlife professionals from across the state, and representing a variety of wildlife and conservation related fields, including wildlife biologists, foresters, rangeland scientists, researchers, land managers, college professors, game wardens, and more.. This hands-on camp allows students to study wildlife and plant identification, wetland habitats, hunting as a management tool, biodiversity, conservation ethics, wildlife capture and census techniques, wildlife tracking, predator-prey dynamics, white-tailed deer management, fishing, hunter safety, shooting skills and much more.
Campers will spend their time exploring 300 acres of pine forest and prairies along Lake Tyler. Housing includes comfortable on-site cabins and meals will be provided at the camp’s dining facility. Camp Tyler has been providing experiences in outdoor education for over 60 years! Campers will have the opportunity to observe and study an abundance of mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects inhabiting this unique ecosystem.
