Pennsylvania high school students will get an opportunity to attend a camp where they can learn about building a career in environmental science, according to a press release from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
The DCNR will host the Eco Camp for 20 to 25 Pennsylvania students who are interested in becoming environmental professionals.
Students will learn about water quality testing, geographic surveys and forestry among other environmental topics.
At the end of the camp students will be able to network with professionals in the field and learn about internships, mentoring and job shadowing.
