Hunter Education Class - 2016
The 4-H Cat Project provides youth a fun and hands-on learning experience that develops life skills, as well as teaches valuable information about properly caring for their animal.
The Master Gardener Program is one way that the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service puts knowledge to work and helps people grow throughout Indiana. The Master Gardener Program helps gardeners grow by providing them with intensive training in horticultural principles.
This project provides youth with educational information about wood and how it can be used to construct items. The wood science project develops project skills (i.e., safe practices, using hand tools, using power tools, making specialized wood cuts) and life skills (i.e., decision-making, using science and technology, developing communication skills).
Observing and studying wildlife can provide a lifetime of enjoyment. This project will help youth learn to identify wildlife, basic wildlife needs, and how wildlife interacts with other wildlife and with people. At the advanced level youth will learn how to create a wildlife habitat.
Youth will collect, observe and identify wildflowers common to the USA. They will learn about habitat, families, gardening with wildflowers, exotic invasives, edible wild plants, medicinal plants, and making dyes with wild plants.
Youth will learn basic information about weather, including what causes variations in weather and why we have different seasons and climates on the earth. In this project youth will observe and record weather conditions and learn weather symbols.
