Everything WHEP: Learning All About the 4-H Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program

Instructor: Renee Strnad

A six-hour training on the WHEP (Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program) will be offered during the 4-H Volunteer Leaders Conference. The session will be on February 6, 2009. Registration/Check-in will be at the conference headquarters at in RTP beginning at 9am. At 9:30, we will load vans to bring everyone to Schenck Forest in Raleigh. We will provide lunch, and part of the day will be outside, and part will be in a classroom... so dress appropriately!! Return transportation will be provided back to the Sheraton, with arrival between 4:30-5pm.

The NC WHEP program has continued to grow since 2000, and teams from North Carolina continue to rank high at the national contests. The program has changed slightly at the state and national levels since 2003, so this session will be the ideal time to get all the details. Lunch and transportation to and from the conference hotel will be included in this session.
Deadline for early registration is January 16 - $110 for three day conference. Regular registration is Jan 16 - Jan 29 - $120 - three day conference. Registration is also available for daily programs. Cost varies. For more information contact the Extension Office at 336-372-5597.
