WHEP (Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program) Team Forming




We still have room on the WHEP team for any 4Her who would like to join us.  For those who don't know, WHEP stands for Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program.  Team members practice and compete in four categories: wildlife identification, wildlife foods, wildlife habitat management, aerial photograph habitat interpretation.  Right now we have one junior team.  If we have enough participants we can easily extend that to two junior teams or add a senior team.  Any age child is welcome to practice with the teams and particiate on contest day if they wish.  However, to be on the teams you must fall into the appropriate age category as of Jan 1, 2013 (Last year).  Junior 9-13 years, Senior 14-19.  This year's contest will be held May 11, 2013 in Johnston County, NC.  Please notify Karowin Cassell at karowinc@yahoo.com or 336-372-4968 by March 18 if you would like to participate.  We will begin practice soon.  Please visit the following website for more information.   http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/forestry/educational_opportunities/youth/4-h_programming.php
