Mountain Nature Camp 2022


Join us for the traditional, week-long residential Mountain Nature Camp or register for any combination of days.

Located on an 18-acre peninsula of rural Terra Alta Lake in Preston County, West Virginia, the camp covers a wide variety of habitats. Mature forests, open wetlands, a meadow and lake are home to many exciting species of birds, amphibians, flowering & non-flowering plants and other wildlife.

Classes throughout the week are led by naturalists and professional interpreters who are distinguished for their knowledge and ability to teach both beginners and experts. Topics and areas of study include Botany, Ornithology, Ecology and Natural History. Field trips to some of West Virginia’s most scenic and ecologically diverse locations are also a highlight of camp.

Guests can bring their own tent or make accommodations to stay at the nearby Alpine Lake Resort. Meals are provided daily at the Mountain Camp lodge. Stay the entire week or any combination of days.
