The Conservation Commission of Wakefield called for a special public meeting to hear questions from parents about the 2012 conservation camp. The camp is a 4-H summer program for area children focussing on environmental stewardship. It is administered by the University of Maine's 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Tanglewood and Blueberry Cove. For more information about the program visit

The 2011/2012 season marks Tanglewood's 30th anniversary. Stay tuned for celebratory events.

The University of Maine's Cooperative Extension outreach program and its 4-H activities are designed to get youth and adults outside, connecting to the natural world.

Tanglewood and Blueberry Cove's camp adventures and school programs are based on "Earth Connections," nature discovery that helps youth become creative stewards of an interconnected world.

Our mission is to teach Maine youth and adults to be effective and caring citizens of the earth through affordable environmental education and nature-based experiences. Reaching over 3,500 youth and adults each year, our programming is year-round, providing affordable nature-based experiences for all ages from two locations.
