NC Cooperative Extension 254 Caddyshack Road, Brasstown, NC
— 11 hours ago

The Scott Hogsed Memorial Youth Conservation & Education Day began when some hunters, anglers and youth group leaders, in far Western North Carolina, decided to try and get kids away from video games and television to show them the beauty and opportunities of the outdoors. They decided to hold the free annual event that would showcase a variety of activities, presented by experts, with an emphasis on fun and safety.
Youth Conservation Day was born in 2005 with a special namesake, Scott Hogsed. Scott was an enthusiastic, energetic 14-year-old who spent as much time as he could hunting and fishing. He lost his life in a vehicle accident returning from a camping trip in 1984.
Through 4-H, hundreds of thousands of North Carolina’s young people learn new skills and serve their communities each year. 4-H offers clubs, special interest programs, summer camps, and school enrichment. Guided by North Carolina Cooperative Extension educators and adult and teen volunteers, 4-H’ers gain knowledge, skills and experience that help them become responsible citizens and leaders.
