The Platteville Community Arboretum Nature Camp is an eight-day outdoor adventure for fourth- through sixth-graders. Campers participate in activities focused on the Rountree Branch stream and trail. Other activities include stream ecology, native planting, art in nature, photography, geo-caching, and a day with the Harry Nohr Trout Unlimited for fishing. Platteville Community Arboretum, Inc. received a grant from the Platteville Community Fund, a component of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin, Inc. to support the arboretum’s summer Nature Camp. This grant was made possible by a gift from the Clarence Gribble Trust. This is the first year Nature Camp was offered due to the continued support from the Platteville Community Fund.
