Earth Camp:
Conservation Stewards for a New Generation

The Earth Camp Conservation Program introduces high schoolers to the mission and the value of the National Forests. Students learn about animals and plants of the Sonoran Desert, forest resources and management, partake in meaningful on-the-ground restoration actions and gain new outdoor skills through hiking and camping.
