Biologists Paul McKenzie and Rick Hansen of the Columbia, Missouri Ecological Services Field Office (CMFO) teamed up with Patty Herman of the Columbia Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation Office (CFWCO) to co-sponsor a “Connect Kids with Nature” summer camp. The event was held in conjunction and cooperation with United Community Cathedral Church (United) and the Columbia Public Schools. The summer and nature camps enabled children to experience various outdoor activities including nature study. The function was held at Rock Bridge State Park in south Columbia. Participants were able to gain firsthand experiences with fish, crayfish, dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies, and stream invertebrates. Participants ranged in age from 18 months to 15. Assisting in the event were Damian Dean and Irma Thurman of United. The event demonstrates CMFO and CFWCO’s ongoing commitment to assist in connecting kids with nature.
