CARROLLTON -- Scholarships for Forestry and Wildlife Conservation Camp are being offered for high school youth interested in attending the forestry and wildlife conservation camp. The camp will be June 9 through June 14 at Camp Muskingum in Carroll County.
Applicants who wish to apply are asked to write an essay on "What Forests Mean to Me" of a minimum of 150 words and send it to the Norma Johnson Center, 2201 B Progress St., Dover, OH 44622. All entries must be received by April 26 to be considered. Winners will be announced the first week of May.
The contest is sponsored by Bob Romig, Tuscarawas County tree farmer, who wants to sponsor a high school student who is interested in attending the camp, in honor of his mother, Gertrude Myer.
During the one-week camp, participants will be taught to identify trees and wildlife, learn about insects, how to manage for wildlife timber harvesting, conduct stream sampling, hike through the woods and monitor wildlife. For information about the camp, visit www.ohioforest.org.
