Natural Resources

Several state-level projects are offered in the area of Natural Resources including wildlife, gardening, forestry, water, and shooting sports!

South Carolina 4-H is growing the next generation of environmental stewards who will manage, care for, and raise awareness of our natural resources. We want to connect youth to nature through positive youth development opportunities using research-based information, involving youth in hands-on learning opportunities to confront some of the world’s most pressing environmental problems, while connecting youth to the science behind real-world issues.
