Media Advisory – Summer Nature Camp

 Reporters and photographers looking for summer activity stories are encouraged to attend the Summer Nature Camp going on this week at Southern Illinois University Carbondale's Touch of Nature Environmental Center, located seven miles south of Carbondale off Giant City Road.

The morning camp — for students in first through sixth grade — provides campers with hands-on projects and activities that focus on learning about nature. The camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through Friday. A good time to catch students in activities is between 9-10:30 a.m. each day.

For more information, contact Kate Hellgren, environmental educator, at 618-453-1121.
