Quercus virginiana, Georgia state tree
Billy Lancaster Forestry Youth Camp
The 2013 camp was held from Sunday, June 23 through Thursday, June 27. The camp was expanded to a four-day format to facilitate field trips and more hands-on activities in the field. The camp is advertised to middle school science teachers who then select science students who come to the camp. The campers are rising 7th and 8th graders. Any Georgia Division forester who has an age-appropriate child and is interested in having them attend the camp should contact Rebecca Watson at MeadWestvaco or Myrt Phillips at the Georgia Forestry Commission in Macon for information. The camp is a program of the Georgia Division SAF. More.
