Our Mission

I am extremely dedicated to introducing kids to the outdoors. This passion has encouraged me to start West Virginia’s first outdoor youth organization, which will be dedicated solely to kids and parents in order to educate them about hunting, fishing and camping. Membership will be totally free.

As a member of Beyond The Backyard, kids will receive quarterly newsletters, have access to our Web site where they will learn about upcoming events and post photos of their outdoor adventures. They will also be able to participate in writing competitions and take part in events that will be held across West Virginia. If you are under the age of 18, I encourage you to sign up. I want to get children more passionate about the outdoors and help get them ‘Beyond The Backyard.’
