The 4-H Coastal Critters and Cloverbuds clubs will be holding an open house on Sunday October 4, 2015, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in the building at the corner of Harney and 3rd. Come find out how you can get involved in fun 4-H projects and activities – both as a youth member or a 4-H volunteer!
Coastal Critters is for youth 9 -18 years old and Cloverbuds is for 5-8 year olds. The clubs expose youth to a wide variety of project areas and activities, including work with small animals such as rabbits, cavies, and poultry. Youth will also have opportunities to do arts and craft projects, learn about nutrition and prepare food, try their hand at woodworking and much more.
Club Leader Cheryl Erickson and all the current club members invite youth and parents to stop by any time between 2:00 and 3:30 and see what it’s all about. 4-H is a great opportunity to learn, make new friends and have FUN!
For more information please contact Cheryl Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 4-H Program Coordinator Todd Williver at the OSU Extension Office, 541-574-6534.
Background: The focus of 4-H is not on becoming an expert in any one area but rather on helping young people learn and grow through an intentional process that builds competence, confidence, connection, compassion and character. Research has shown that by participating in 4-H, young people prepare themselves for economic and social success in adulthood.
