University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H will offer an online information session on the Maine 4-H chapter of the Wildlife Habitat Education Program from 6:30–7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 26. 

WHEP, a national program with wildlife and fisheries habitat management education programs for youth ages 8–19, is available in Maine, with training and support from UMaine Extension 4-H staff. WHEP 4-H clubs are led by Extension 4-H volunteers who work with youth to learn and practice their skills. Youth may also participate in the annual state competition. Volunteers do not need to be content experts; training and hands-on practice will be provided
