Wildlife Youth Education
As America becomes less rural, children grow up with fewer chances to experience the wonders of the natural world. The MSU Extension Service offers a variety of experiences, workshops, camps, 4-H projects, and curricula designed to introduce young people to wildlife, conservation, environmental science, outdoor recreation, and scientific inquiry.
Along with partners from several state and federal agencies, Extension hosts: annual summer camps to allow young people to explore and learn more about wildlife and natural science; teacher workshops; homeschool science events; Scout badge workshops; in-school programming like Youth Environmental Science, wildlife classroom enrichment guest presentations, and Eko-Kids curriculum; BioBlitz discovery events; and 4-H projects about wildlife and wildlife habitat.
