Snow College: Natural Resources Summer Camp

snow college natural resourcesYou guys, there are so many great college programs in Utah!  Every day I learn about new events that bring students to college campuses, help them earn college credit, and give them a glimpse of life as a college student. One  of those programs, and one that I wish I could attend, is the Natural Resources Summer Camp at Snow College.  This hands-on science camp is held for two weeks in July and students spend their time outdoors in places like Ephraim and Fairview Canyons as well as Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.  During these two weeks, students will learn how to think and act like a scientist as they study subjects like geology, hydrology, plant and animal communities, and soil structures.  And they do it all in some of the most beautiful places in Utah!

This is a great way to get a head start on a degree in Natural Resources, and experience life as a scientist/college student.  You will also receive three college credits by taking NR1020-Environmental Sampling and Analysis and Geo 2500-Geology Field Studies. And what a great way to spend a few weeks in the summer:  outdoors, viewing some of scenic Utah, and meeting new people!  You can find more information and great photos on their Facebook Page:  Snow College Natural Resources.
