The SC 4-H Wildlife Food Plot project is a hands-on environmental education program and a competitive, independent-study project that allows youth ages 5 through 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 real-life practice.
