Earth Day and Beyond in Nebraska

The Fontenelle Nature Association in Nebraska has a lot going on to get kids outdoors. Here's a summary.
For years, Fontenelle Forest has operated numerous summer day camps spanning from two days to an entire week for toddlers to sixth-graders and are limited to 16 campers in an attempt to keep the student-to-teacher ratio low and provide a better experience. Although the camps can accommodate up to 600 children each summer, on average, only 400 attend.
