A free-will offering will be taken. All community members are welcome to attend. 

In the rangeland judging event, contestants use their knowledge of soils and grassland plants to assess habitat suitability for livestock and wildlife. They also identify plants and their characteristics, determine if a certain site is meeting management goals and recommend management practices to improve the site’s functionality.

Vada Enfield of Letcher placed second in the New Rangers Division (Ages 8-10) for Individual Rangeland Judging. Beau Enfield of Letcher also came in fourth.
