Interested in wildlife and the habitats they live in? You may want to learn more about WHEP (Wildlife Habitat Education Program).  We are now forming teams for 2017.  The contest is open youth ages 8-19 (you must be 8 as of January 1, 2017).  Youth will be on teams ages 8-13 (Juniors)and 14-19 (Seniors).  Teams will be able to travel to the state contest and if winners, travel on to the national contest.  State competition occurs typically in May.  You do not need prior experience to participate.

Two former WHEP participants will be coaching our teams this year.  Bryan Cassell and Gretchen Huysman have both participated and won on the state level and competed at the National Level winning 3rd.
