The University of Iowa Wildlife Camps goals for its participants are sincere and straightforward. These goals include; providing opportunities that grow awareness of the natural world, nurture an appreciation for the wild and increase actions that care for the outdoors. We do this through hands-on experiences that hope to excite and kindle a love for nature.
