Welcome to Nebraska 4-H Summer Camps! The summer programs offered at both of our 4-H camping locations provide all youth a place to discover, learn, and grow. Your child does not have to be a member of 4-H to attend. At Nebraska 4-H Camps and Centers, we believe strongly in promoting the mission of Nebraska 4-H, which encourages all young people to reach their full potential, by working and learning in partnership with caring adults. Amidst the beauty of the Nebraska National Forest and Schramm State Park and beyond, we are able to do what we do best: provide a life-changing summer camp experience for all youth!

Emerald Ash Borer—Where Is It In Nebraska and When Should Tree Owners Treat For It?

By Kathleen Cue, Extension Educator-Horticulture

 

The much-dreaded emerald ash borer (EAB) was identified in Douglas County in 2016.  Since that time, EAB has been found in several other locations that holds implications for counties in the eastern part of Nebraska.

 

Infestations of this insect are known to kill ash trees in a relatively short time period—from 3 to 5 years in most cases.  Once an ash tree is dead, the tree quickly becomes brittle and is a threat to nearby homes, vehicles, and yes, people.
