It’s officially summer! The student sporting a cowboy hat in the photo above clearly knows how to take advantage of a nice summer’s day. Camping is of course a popular summer pastime and has been for many years. Not only is it a fun recreational activity, it can also be educational. In fact, Iowa State has required Forestry majors to participate in camps for years. A great deal of information on this can be found in Digital Archivist Kim’s blog post from several weeks ago.

Whether you enjoy camping or glamping, get outside and enjoy the warm the weather! Too hot outside? Then stop by Special Collections and University Archives – not only do we have air conditioning, but lots of interesting collections and photographs to explore!
