The Pittsburg State University Nature Reach Program and the Sperry-Galligar Audubon Society will sponsor a summer science day camp for children who have completed or who are entering fourth grade this fall. The camp will run from 9 a.m. until noon on Tuesdays in June and July with the exception of July 3.

The camp, which is limited to just 12 students, will focus on Science Through Gardening. Participants in the camp will learn scientific concepts from soil ecology, animal adaptations, and growing food for people and wildlife. The camp will be held at the PSU Natural History Reserve, 1053 S. 180th Street, Pittsburg.

The cost for the camp is $15 per session or $105 for all eight sessions. Students who attend five or more sessions will earn a prize.

To enroll or for more information, call Delia Lister, director of the Nature Reach Program, at 620-235-4727 or send an e-mail to
