For one week each summer, a group of conservation-minded high school students from southwest Missouri gets a chance to be part of the Green Leadership Academy for Diverse Ecosystems or (GLADE) program.
The free camp, hosted by Missouri State University and the Greater Ozarks Audubon Society, exposes students to Ozarks ecosystems and develops their leadership skills. It is held at Bull Shoals Field Station.
Fourteen students participated in the ninth annual GLADE camp held last month.
GLADE Co-Directors Tammy Trantham and Andrew Kinslow give more insight about the program.
