Environment Camp

We are currently raising funds ($20,000) for Enviro Research Camp 2016. This is an annual event where we expose high school students to hands on environmental research with the instruction of professors from Gannon University, Mercyhurst University, Penn State University, and California University of Pennsylvania.


Twenty students will spend five days studying our environment, starting with lecture and field work, followed by a free lunch and a fun Eco Adventure group activity. Following the camp, students will be able to present their findings to the Regional Science Consortium, parents, researchers, and school officials over a BBQ dinner at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center’s patio.


The program is free to the students and Friends of TREC will continue to work to keep it that way.
