2014 GLADE campers

Each summer, Missouri State University and the Greater Ozarks Audubon Society host the Green Leadership Academy for Diverse Ecosystems or (GLADE) program at Bull Shoals Field Station.

About 16 conservation-oriented high school students are selected to participate in this week-long residential summer camp.

The mission of GLADE is to provide students with the knowledge and skills for the care of Ozarks ecosystems, restore critical habitat for endangered species in Missouri, develop informed community leaders and inspire students to develop environmental projects in their own communities.

GLADE Co-Director Dr. Janice Greene, Logan-Rogersville graduate Marissa Mac and Nixa senior Austin Kurth discuss GLADE.
