Kentucky Forest Leadership Program

     Deadline to Apply:  April 28, 2023

June 4-9, 2023 at University of Kentucky's Robinson Forest

Are you interested in the environment and want to know more about forests, trees, insects, water and wildlife; in short, Kentucky’s natural resources? Then consider the Kentucky Forest Leadership Program where you can explore the many aspects of forestry and related fields. If you like hands-on learning in the great outdoors then this program is for you. This week-long, residential program is designed for high school students.

The Kentucky Forest Leadership Program offers three educational tracks*: Forestry, Entomology and Wildlife. While choosing a track provides you the opportunity to experience a concentrated program, the three tracks will work together throughout the week just as real-life natural resources experts do. So, if you want to learn about Kentucky’s forests, but are seriously interested in insects or wildlife you will get the opportunity to experience a concentrated program in entomology or wildlife while also learning about the forest.

The leadership program is not a recreational summer camp. You can expect to be busy with a full schedule of hands-on forestry and natural resource activities for the week, including:

  • Forestry – students will learn about tree and plant identification, forest evaluation and management, soil and water quality and fire management in Kentucky’s forests.
  • Entomology – students will learn about insect identification, collection, preservation and ecology. They will also learn about the positive and negative impacts insects can have on Kentucky’s forests.
  • Wildlife – students will gain experience with different techniques to sample, identify and manage wildlife as well as conducting species diversity and population surveys in various Kentucky habitats.
