The Lower Cape Fear River Basin Eco Camp is tailored to children between the ages of about 9 years to 12 years old. It is designed to serve as a long term watershed protection program by enabling children to better understand how they are connected to natural and built environments, and how to be an excellent steward of the environment through personal action and social settings. Students will develop critical thinking skills through the exploration of New Hanover County watersheds. The experience will begin with an in-class presentation of the Enviroscape, which is a scaled down model of a watershed that enables students to visually learn about watersheds. Students will make real-world connections through unique and memorable field trips.
