Exploring 4-H is a taste of 4-H for those in Grade 2. There are seven exhibit options for these youth to obtain a feel of what the full 4-H program is all about for those in Grades 3-12. Each Exploring 4-H member will receive a participation ribbon and will have their project critiqued.
There are basically six events starting with an orientation program, project help session, field day, project judging, fair parade and fun at the fair event. The cost of the program is $5 for the program fee
If 4-Hers take part in the wood science project, they learn to build and stain their own wooden articles.
The agricultural and lawn tractor project lets participants learn to drive tractors as well as about tractor safety and mechanics.
In the Soil and Water Conservation project, 4-Hers learn about soil, grasses, erosion march modeling and the conservation of these resources.
