Earth Camp:
Conservation Stewards for a New Generation

Why does the environment matter if you’re planning a career in Media or Culinary Arts? Or in Engineering or Bioscience? Earth Camp explores this question with high school students, and at the same time introduces them to natural resource careers and opportunities, especially in the National Forests. For example, Media students create public service announcements, Culinary students restore native trees and learn to cook with native ingredients, Bioscience students monitor pollinators and Engineering students design and repair trails to minimize runoff damage.

Earth Camp is a partnership with the Coronado National Forest, the Arizona Conservation Corps and Tucson Unified School District’s Career and Technical Education Program, funded by the National Forest Foundation and the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Heritage Fund. Three-day experiences connect science, art and communication, ethnobotany and engineering with hands-on stewardship and restoration experiences on the Coronado National Forest. Earth Camp brings STEAM skills to life while also providing outdoor leadership opportunities.
