Pee Dee State Park was filled with eager 4-H competitors on a Saturday in April for a beautiful day at the State WHEP competition! WHEP (National Wildlife Habitat Education Program) is a hands-on environmental education program that provides participants an opportunity to test their wildlife knowledge in a friendly competition!


The annual State contest location moves to different areas of the State each year. Rarely does Henderson County miss the opportunity to send a team to compete. WHEP Practice The Young Naturalist 4-H Club held WHEP practices where 4-H’ers learned about native wildlife habitats, identification, management practices and writing/speaking skills each week that they met together. The Club practiced hard to send teams of 3-4 similarly aged 4-H individuals to the competition held in April! Their diligent efforts paid off placing as teams and individual awards!
