LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Students ages 14 through 18 who want to learn about conservation, ecology, animal science, and wildlife are urged to attend the 53rd Nebraska Youth Range Camp.

The camp is scheduled to run June 6-10 at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp in Halsey.

Camp director Shelly Kelly with the Sandhills Task Force says rangelands cover nearly 50 percent of Nebraska and the state’s youth need education to become effective leaders in resource management.

Registration costs $325, but students will pay no more than $100, with sponsor organizations picking up the rest.

The camp application form can be found at the Nebraska Society for Range Management website at www.nesrm.org or by sending an email to [email protected]

Applications need to be submitted by May 27.
