OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Forestry Services is offering a chance for teens to learn more about the forest while exploring Oklahoma’s natural resources in Beavers Bend State Park.

“Catching Fire” is the theme of the agency’s 58th Annual Youth Forestry Camp, planned June 2-7. Campers will learn how fire affects the forest’s ecosystem. Hands-on activities with natural resource professionals will include wildlife management, forestry management, stream ecology and fire management.

Other programs during the weeklong camp will include tree identification, GPS exploration, forest measurements and soil investigations. And there will be time each day for recreational activities, such as swimming, hiking, canoeing, archery and fishing.

The fee for campers is $175 and covers all costs, including lodging, meals, transportation at camp, field trips and workshops. Some partial scholarships are available.
