The third annual Native Earth summer camp for Native American youth of the northeast will be held August 8 to 19 this year. During the program Native elders, teachers and environmental professionals teach traditional ecological knowledge and environmental science through wilderness field experience, instruction, as well as cultural activities.
The program is hosted by the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) in partnership with the Haudenosaunee Environmental Task Force. Facilities for the program include the SUNY ESF Cranberry Lake Biological Station, located in the Adirondacks, and the Thompson Island Youth and Elders Camp at Akwesasne.
Native Earth is open to Native American high school students of all nations. Apply online by July 10 to be a part of the program. For more information contact Dr. Robin Kimmerer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Noah Point (email@example.com).
