    ACE CAMP Adventure Camp About the Environment hosted by Nebraska's NRDs. June at Halsey 4-H Camp Facility.

    It is important to the UNWNRD that we provide the best possible conservation resources to the members of our district. To assist district residents, of all ages, in furthering their knowledge of conservation the NRD offers two different scholarships.

    The scholarship available to all district residents is the Dorshorst Memorial Fund Scholarship. This scholarship is available to anyone who wishes to further their knowledge of conservation methods. Adults, students, teachers, producers are all eligible to receive these funds. Funds can be used to attend workshops or seminars that focus on conserving our natural resources. To apply simply submit a letter to the NRD detailing the workshop, event, or seminar that you wish to attend, cost of attendance, and how you feel this event will further your knowledge of natural resource conservation.
    This scholarship is available year round.
    Every year the State 4-H Camp in Halsey hosts the Society for Range Management Nebraska Range Youth Camp. The SRM Nebraska Range Youth Camp is for young adults age 14 -18. The NRD offers a scholarship of $275 to each chosen applicant, which covers the complete cost of the camp including meals, lodging, recreation, camp insurance, and transportation while at the camp. Range camps provides students with the opportunity to learn more about range management and also become more aware of natural resources.
