Into the Wild
Summertime means summer camps. In nature’s classroom. Where students grow a deeper passion and respect for wildlife and conservation.Posted by Texas Farm Bureau on Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Everything here was amazing, and I had the best time learning.
Y’all should keep this camp going for lots of generations to come.
I believe my ‘land ethic’ has greatly improved and that I am much more informed about what a ‘land ethic’ is.
Wildlife conservation means to me that we need to not only give to the land, but to give more than we take.
This camp was awesome! I really had a blast and met a lot of new people. Thank you for the experience!
I honestly had a blast and you will get another application with my name on it next summer.
