Get Involved in the Wildlife Habitat Education Program (WHEP)

Do you enjoy time outdoors, the wildlife, trees, and the natural environment? Are you thinking about pursuing a career in land stewardship or wildlife management? Then you might like the Wildlife Habitat Education Program! WHEP is a national program, offered to youth in 4-H and FFA, aimed at educating young people about wildlife habitat management. All ages are welcome, but the program is best suited for ages 8 to 18.

In addition to learning how to identify wildlife, fish, animal tracks and trees, youth participate in an annual state competition to test their knowledge. Youth 14- to 18-years-old may also be able to compete in the National WHEP contest.

Attend the online information session on October 26th from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to find out more about how you can get involved as a volunteer or youth participant. Register today! For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Erin McDonald, 207.581.8163;
