The mission of the Camp Simpson Biological Survey is to identify and document the organisms endemic to the 2,000+ acre area of Johnston County, Oklahoma contained within the boundaries of the Camp Simpson Boy Scout camp. The survey is being conducted under the supervision of the Shawnee High School Department of Life Sciences. The project's primary mission is to engage high school students in the actual hands-on application of collection and classification techniques learned in the classroom. The camp consists of Cross Timbers forests made up primarily of oak, hickory, elm, juniper and bois d' arc. A dam across the Delaware Creek forms a 67 acre flood control conservation lake.
