WILDLIFE JUDGING — Junior and senior high Obion County 4-Hers recently participated in the Western Region 4-H Wildlife Judging Contest. Teams from West Tennessee gathered to compete in this contest, which was held at Parker’s Crossroads. During the contest, 4-Hers worked to identify common wildlife foods, interpret wildlife habitat from aerial photographs and prescribe on-site wildlife management recommendations. The wildlife project was designed to teach 4-H youth about the fundamentals of wildlife science and management. Natural resources management is learned through participation in the event and other associated programs. Additional benefits come from the development of leadership capabilities and meeting other young people and professionals. The senior high Obion County 4-H Wildlife Judging Team includes (back, from left) Chelsie Darnell, Garrett McDaniel and Jordan Jones, all Obion County Central High School students. The junior high team includes (front) Mary Helen Driver, Nancy Davis, Ben Jones and Logan Stephens, all Ridgemont Elementary students. Published in The Messenger 8.5.08
