Over the last three years North Carolina DU has established and fostered a partnership with North Carolina Future Farmers of America chapters, providing DU the opportunity to engage with high school students statewide. The partnership has grown from attending the state FFA convention, with the goal of engaging a few thousand students from across the state to a partnership that will have NCDU providing workshops for NCFFA Ag teachers during the summer of 2018. NCFFA has invited NCDU to attend the NCFFA/NCWRC (North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission) wildlife camp and has provided DU with the opportunity to speak to the campers about DU’s mission and the DU Varsity program. DU’s participation at the camp and state convention has allowed us to establish 3 new DU Varsity chapters. In addition to the state convention and wildlife camps, NCDU created a wood duck box project that allows NCFFA students to complete required course work for their ag classes while learning about waterfowl and conservation.
