The 4-H Wildlife Food Plot Project is a hands-on environmental education program and an independent-study project that allows youth (ages 5-18) an opportunity to establish, maintain, and observe a wildlife food plot. Youth learn concepts of wildlife conservation, plant identification, and habitat management and have the opportunity to put that knowledge into practice. We thank our sponsors, Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) and Wannamaker Wildlife, for their support of this project! Youth will be supplied with a record book, food plot seed (for about 1/8 of an acre) provided by Wannamaker Wildlife, a membership to QDMA Rack Pack, and newsletter that will help them with the project. Youth will be responsible for preparing, planting, maintaining, and observing a wildlife food plot and documenting their efforts in their record book. Record books have been specifically designed for each age division. At the end of the project, youth will submit their record book for judging at the county level. County-winning record books in the Junior and Senior age divisions will advance to the regional- and state-level for judging. If you would like to register for this project at your local Extension office, complete the 2019 Wildlife Food Plot Project Contract (PDF 0.1MB) and return it with payment to your local Extension office. For questions, please contact Mrs. Lauren Hood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW for this year: Online, digital record books & a Group registration option!!! Groups of five or more youth can compete as a group in this project for the 2019-2020 year.
