Wildlife is all around us regardless of where we live and how wild or not the world around us seems. Only a matter of observation will open a person’s eyes, along with their other senses, to the natural world of the living creatures among us. The 4-H Wildlife Project can offer opportunities for youth development beginning with observation skills leading to a lifelong ethic of stewardship for our natural resources. The 4-H Natural Resources Program provides trainings and events for youth and adults to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills necessary for an adventure in wildlife.
