Observation Station “Campers will learn to observe the natural world in detail, and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for our protected habitats. They will put their observation skills to use during a multi-habitat hike where they will create nature journals and document the nature they see (campers can bring devices to take photos), and they will learn how observations play an important role in scientific method experiments!”
