Merlin Leadership Program - June 24-28
This camp is focused on developing our next generation of conservation-minded community members. During their week with the Merlin Leadership Program, campers will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and deepen their conservation ethic.  

Campers will participate in team building activities including visiting the University of Iowa’s Challenge Course and planning a canoe day trip on Lake Macbride. They will also spend the week designing and executing a project with the goal of supporting the continued, sustainable use of the Macbride Nature Recreation Area.  

Projects may include assisting with building an outdoor classroom space for students at Iowa Wildlife Camps, School of the Wild and other programs, improving trail systems with signage and/or trail work, building and placing Kestrel nesting boxes to name a few!
