Applications are being accepted for the 2013 Montana Youth Range Camp from July 8-12 at Camp Needmore near Ekalaka. It is open to youths ages 12 to 18.

Students will attend outdoor classes covering four major subjects: water and riparian areas; soils and geology; rangeland monitoring; and wildlife and livestock grazing management.

Students also receive instruction in plant identification and anatomy, and work in teams to solve a natural resource or range management problem, presenting their solutions to a panel of judges at the end of the week.

Campers also will have the opportunity to tour the Dinosaur Museum.

There will be an evening of wildlife demonstrations from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks along with campfires and a dance on the last night of camp.

Cost is $125 and includes meals, lodging and all scheduled activities. Registration is due by June 17.

Scholarships may be available by contacting your local conservation district. 

For more information, contact Heidi Crum, DNRC Rangeland Program Coordinator at 406-444-6619, or Kodie Olsen with the Little Beaver Conservation District at 406-778-2217 ext. 111.
