Junior Naturalist: Down With Dirt!

Due to the health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Audubon will not be facilitating summer camps. It is a paramount priority of Audubon and Strawberry Plains to provide safe and valuable experiences for all individuals that engage with our Centers, whether as volunteers, daily visitors, or camp participants. We look forward to continuing to provide these experiences into the future. Be well, stay safe, and take care of one another. 

Summer is upon us and Strawberry Plains is excited to host our fifth annual Junior Naturalist & Ecology Camp, June 8th-12th from 9 am – 3 pm. Each day we will cover a different habitat of our 2,600 acres at SPAC, including hands-on activities such as bird behavior, plant identification, wildlife tracking and sign, introductions to habitat succession, ecological concepts and much more. The camps activities are based on the Mississippi and Tennessee state frameworks for Math and Science. Camp activities foster a “hands on” approach to learning, and prepare them for the upcoming school year. This encourages students to become excited about nature and collecting data.

The camp is open to 8-12 year old's, though we can make exceptions for siblings close in age. The cost is $100; students will be provided a mid-morning snack and we ask they are sent with a sack lunch. More details are included in the attached registration form at the link below. Should your children be unable to attend all five days, we can work out a separate cost per day.

Spaces are limited so register today! Please contact Mitch Robinson at or call 662-252-1155 with any questions, and we accept credit card payments over the phone.
