Scholarships Available to Conservation Camp

​Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors at Wake County high schools are invited to apply for a full scholarship to attend the 2013 Resource Conservation Workshop, Sunday, June 23, 2013, to Friday, June 28, 2013, at North Carolina State University. Scholarships are provided by the Wake Soil and Water Conservation District (WSWCD) Board of Supervisors. Space is limited and highly competitive.

The intensive week-long conservation camp introduces young adults to natural resources management with conservation professionals in various fields such as:
  • Soil and Water Conservation
  • Forestry
  • Water Quality
  • Wildlife
"Students tell us that the Resource Conservation Workshop was the highlight of their summer," said Dale Threatt-Taylor, WSWCD Director, "and many go on to pursue careers in an environmental field. That's why we want to provide this wonderful learning opportunity to as many young people as we possibly can every year."
The application is available on the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website. Completed applications are due on Friday, May 24, 2013, at the WSWCD, 4001 Carya Drive, Suite D, Raleigh.
