We are excited to host an Outdoor Explorers Nature Camp July 24-28, 2023! This camp will emphasize outdoor exploration, science investigation, crafts, interactive learning activities, and lots of fun. 

Campers will be led by our nationally recognized Education and Outreach Coordinator Sarah Borzo, as well as our team of Green Iowa AmeriCorps members.

Each day, campers will learn about a new topic, such as prairie pollinators or wetland species, at our Environmental Learning Center (ELC), which boasts more than 500 acres of restored natural habitats. It is home to a variety of plants and animals, and is the perfect environment for engaging learning and exploration.

Registration is $50 and is open to children entering first through third grade. Space is limited, so don’t wait to sign up!

For questions or more information, please contact Sarah Borzo at
