Involvement in the Texas FFA’s Wildllife CDE requires members to demonstrate knowledge related to wildlife habitat management and conservation of natural resources, knowledge of laws governing hunting and other outdoor recreational activities, and safety. Traditionally the State FFA Wildlife CDE is rotated annually around Texas. Allowing different regions across our diverse state to host the event. This year competition will be held May 13th in Sinton, Texas on Rob and Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation Refuge located in the Coastal Plains of Region III.
The Wildlife CDE, as well as all FFA CDEs, provide opportunities for agri-science students to use class room instruction and apply it in a “hands on” manner. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth ad career success.
