4-H Wildlife Education
Many outdoor educators are concerned that children spend too little time outdoors exploring the natural world. Kids today spend more time in front of a screen than ever before.
These programs acquaint youth with the outdoors and natural resources as they prepare to become the next generation of land stewards. Education is our number one goal. This is accomplished through both competitive and non-competitive programs available to local 4-H clubs and counties, state and national 4-H programs, and camps and programs at the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center.
Many youth develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of wildlife and its management. Some may choose careers as foresters, wildlife biologists, enforcement officers, water quality specialists, soil scientists, or other fields that use knowledge and skills gained through natural resource 4-H programs.
