WET & WILD Summer Camp 2015

Go WILD this summer at the Nature Center!

The Bob Jones Nature Center will be using the critically acclaimed, and TEKS aligned, Project WILD and Project AQUATIC curriculum! Exploring the tiny minnow to the majestic grizzly, wildlife and how humans are integrally connected. Project WILD links campers and wildlife through its mission to provide wildlife-based conservation and environmental education that fosters responsible actions toward wildlife and related natural resources. Through the use of this balanced curriculum, materials and professional training, Project WILD aligns with the Bob Jones vision to Education, Conserve and Preserve.

This will result in campers making informed decisions, demonstrating responsible behaviors and constructive action concerning wildlife and the environment.
