Roc Carey was recognized at our annual volunteer appreciation picnic last Sunday as being a hard working youth volunteer in the Bankhead National Forest. Roc has participated in numerous stewardship projects. He is a regular on Wild South hikes and simply can't get enough of the forest. Roc went home with a wealth of goodies including his first backpacking tent. We hope he continues to learn and grow with the Wild South family!
George Albee got his first chance to shoot a deer on his first Maine Youth Day Hunt around 1:35 ish and unfortunately just could not see it. We had at least a full minute to get ready for the shot. By the time George did see it and I had camera focused on the deer it decided to bound off out of sight. #youthintheoutdoors#youthhunting#protectourhuntingrights
Good morning from Woodie Camp! We're having a great week so far, and there are still so many good things on tap. It's always so rewarding to see the 13- to 15-year-olds at camp get excited about learning about ducks and conservation and this year is no different.

And we're off! Woodie Camp 2017 is under way. Looking forward to spending the week with a bunch of kids who are jazzed about ducks and conservation.
The inaugural group of the Missouri National Recreational River Junior Ranger Club met today in Riverside Park. The group of 10 youth, ages 10-13, met today to get an overview of the national park and its natural and cultural resources. The club will meet bi-monthly for four hours each meeting to learn something about the park including how to kayak. The highlight activity for the summer club is a paddle trip from Gavins Point Dam to Green Island for a campfire and lunch. Pictured is Ranger Dugan Smith giving a talk on kayak orientation to club members. #FindYourPark#nationalparks#midwestnps#npsjuniorranger#juniorranger#youthintheoutdoors

This is what our YOUTH EXPO is all about! •INSPIRING •ENGAGING •EDUCATING YOUTH into a greater health and wellness! 🎣🏋🏼♀️🏕 We had the chance to catch up & chat with Emma Stevens; Emma is the first Nova Scotian, male or female, to make the National team in sport of freestyle skiing (specializing in slopestyle). ⛷🎿⛷🎿⛷🎿⛷🎿⛷ "She’s currently ranked 6th overall in Canada and is raising eyebrows. She’s been well known in the Atlantic Canadian ski community, but her notoriety is beginning to break out beyond her sport. Young, savvy, blonde and athletic, she is positioning herself to be the face of not only freestyle skiing, but an icon in women’s sport." - emmaslopestyle.com
Thank you Emma for your inspiration, and we hope to have you at the Youth Expo 2018 !
