During the summer, Ford's Colony Garden Club sponsors the participation of local students in Nature Camp. Pictured is Brieanna Gillen, an eighth grader at Hornsby Middle School. She majored in limnology (the study of fresh water ponds and lakes) at the camp. Other students sponsored by the club were Nicholas Gosselin, in the ninth grade at Jamestown High School who majored in entomology; Calle Newton, a homeschooled 10th grader who majored in botany; and Rylee Wostell, a ninth-grader at Jamestown High School who majored in ecology. Students interested in learning more about sponsorships for Nature Camp are encouraged to call 345-2870. . .
