The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District is proud to award scholarship funding to three Geauga County residents for registration to the 2017 Ohio Forestry and Wildlife Conservation Camp, taking place June 11-16, at FFA Camp Muskingum in Carrollton, Ohio.  David Cavanagh from Chagrin Falls High School, Calahan Heiss from Berkshire Jr/Sr High School, and Kenneth Kirk from West Geauga Middle School were awarded scholarships to join other high school campers from across the state to attend this unique and engaging camp promoting the wise management of Ohio’s forests and natural resources.
At Camp Muskingum, David, Calahan, and Kenny will participate in many classes including forest ecology, wildlife management, and forest products, plus activities like a team-building adventure course, a night hike, and a tree climbing program.  At the end of the camp, students will have a chance to earn college scholarship money through the final exam.  The Geauga SWCD Board of Supervisors and staff congratulate these students and wish them a positive and rewarding camp experience.
