Winston County 4-H Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Team

Three 4-H members from Winston County recently competed in the State 4-H Wildlife Judging Contest held at the College of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences in Auburn. The team placed third out of nine junior teams at the two day event. 4-H'ers were evaluated on their knowledge of wildlife identification, wildlife foods, management practices, and wildlife management plans. Pictured from left to right are Caleigh Cook, Sarah Mauldin (both attend Meek Elementary) and Will Gunnin (Addison Elementary). Jay Conway, Regional Extension Agent for Winston and Cullman Counties, worked with the team to help them learn about wildlife habitat evaluation. The Winston County Natural Resources Council sponsored the team's trip to Auburn by covering the registration fees and lodging for the 4-H'ers and their families. For more information on the 4-H Wildlife Judging team contact the Winston County Extension Office at 205-489-5376. Congratulations to the 4-H'ers on their successful team effort.
