dc.description.abstract An annual five-day Conservation Camp is attended by 176 14- to 18- year old 4-H members. The campers receive field instruction in soils, water, forestry, wildlife and recreation related to land use and develop a land use plan. In 1993, the water quality portion of the program was evaluated to determine the effect on knowledge and skills. Pre/post tests, land use plans, and oral presentations were examined. Camper knowledge of water quality principles was significantly increased when compared to a control group. Most campers included erosion control practices in land use plans and all positioned water supplies upslope of pollution sources. About 40% of the campers included waste treatment systems in land use plans. en_US
