Northampton County Junior Conservation School - Conservation Through Education

The Northampton County 4-H Center provides their grounds to The Northampton County Junior Conservation School to serve as their base camp for our residential /educational experience. Qualified instructors introduce the students to a diversified environmental program from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources at the Jacobsburg Environmental Educational CenterPennsylvania Game CommissionPennsylvania Fish and Boat CommissionNorthampton County Conservation District, the Northampton County 4-H Center Board and Northampton County Cooperative Extension.

The success of the program hinges on the support and financial partnerships provided by the Northampton County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, and many other conservation, environmental and community organizations.

In these uncertain times, the Northampton County Junior Conservation School Board of Directors has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 NCJCS Session in July 2020. We plan to make the best of this situation, and to focus our efforts on strengthening our organization and our program. For those of you who wish to participate and support the future or NCJCS, we have embraced online meeting concept and welcome all to participate. We will announce meetings via social media or can add you to email distribution lists.
