Wisconsin Youth Water Stories Summit
August 1, 2019 - August 3, 2019
This camp will explore water on the landscape and invite campers to write the story of their waterway. Water has formed Upham Woods. It carved out Blackhawk Island and the narrowest part of the Wisconsin River. The rocks contain ripples from an ancient watery world and our salamanders and macro-invertebrates wriggle around a new one today. Our programming will focus on these features and others as campers explore on canoes, through swimming, and with the help of technology. Participants will have the chance to use professional grade field equipment on the Wisconsin River to measure pH, turbidity and understand how those variables impact their environment.
This camp is open to anyone age 8-17 who lives in Wisconsin. Adult volunteers are welcome.
The cost is free. There is limited availability, with registration closing on June 12th.
