Oklahoma Forestry Services hosted the 53rd annual "Oklahoma Youth Forestry and Wildlife Camp" from June 8 through 13, 2009 at Beaver's Bend State Park in Hochatown, Oklahoma.  The Youth Forestry and Wildlife Camp provides students, ages 13 to 15, the opportunity to experience and learn about the forestry and wildlife resource professions, learn about Oklahoma's diverse natural resources, and develop an awareness of the natural environment.  The camp provided a hands on experience for the 48 participants to explore Oklahoma's natural resources.  RM Weaver conducted a program for the students on June 11, 2009 about wetlands management on Little River National Wildlife Refuge.  The students were shown wetlands management units and water control structures on the refuge.  The students actively participated in the removal of stoplogs from a water control structure to remove water from a management unit.
