FOR: Youth in grades 5 through one year past high school.
WHAT: Learn about furbearers in Wisconsin – mammals whose fur has commercial value – including where and how they live and how to identify their tracks – and be introduced to trapping under the safety and guidance of a certified 4-H volunteer and experienced trapper.
WHEN: 11 a.m. Sundays starting Sept. 20 (this program includes a blend of online learning sessions and outdoor field days).
PROGRAM: This program includes:
- Weekly facilitation and mentoring by a certified 4-H volunteer.
- Outdoor field days where participants will gain hands-on experience safely and under supervision.
WHY? Structured out-of-school time learning experiences and adult mentoring plays a vital role in helping youth achieve success.
Oneida County 4-H’s Furbearer Club for Youth and Teens is based on the Wisconsin DNR’s trapping education curriculum, which promotes management of wildlife through scientifically-based regulations that consider animal welfare and that are strictly enforced by Wisconsin conservation wardens. This program also is based on the national 4-H Wildlife Science curriculum, which is tied to developing life skills for youth and delivered in a positive youth development context.
