Take a walk on the wild side at Community Connect Nature Camp


Posted by: tdt -

    Take a few days this summer to learn how the other half lives; the other half being those four-legged or even no-legged creatures with which we share this space we call home. At Nature Camp, June 30 through July 2, 10:00 a.m. to noon, campers ages 8, 9 and 10, will learn about habits and habitats of our fellow critters from fish to fowl, from mammal to reptile.

    Camp activities include a presentation by Nick Olson, XIT Museum Curator, on local wildlife, habitat and food chains. Seth Hanbury, Dalhart native, WTAMU student, and “interested in snakes and reptiles forever…almost,” according to his mother, Lisa Hanbury, is currently working for the Panhandle Plains Museum in Canyon, will be sharing his fascination with and knowledge of snakes and other reptiles. Camp will be led by Shadlynn Maness.

    Registration for Camp “Project Nature” is open online at www.dalhartcommunityeducation.org or in person at 701 E. 10th Street. For further information, call Community Connect at 244-7818.
