As cool weather comes upon us, leaves on many of our trees will start to change from their summer greens to brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges. It is an enjoyable time to be outside and enjoy the beautiful colors. Scientists have worked to understand the changes in trees during this time of year. They have learned about the processes in the leaves that lead to these colors.
In partnership with the Indiana 4-H Foundation, the Indiana 4-H Youth Development Program annually awards more than $122,000.00 in scholarships to 4-H members to pursue post-secondary education. Scholarships are awarded to recognize youth participating in Indiana's 4-H Youth Development Program on their achievements and life skill development resulting from their participation in a variety of 4-H experiences. Applications must be submitted online through 4HOnline by January 25, 2017 Deadline.
The 4-H Horse and Pony Project provides youth with valuable information about properly caring for their animal. Meetings and activities (such as workshops, horse bowl, & Hippology) provide youth with a fun and hands-on learning experience which develops both horse & pony subject skills (such as nutrition, housing, and health care) and life skills (such as responsibility, decision-making, nurturing, and communications). Skills are learned under the direction of caring adults.
Agricultural producers from Indiana and Illinois learned about new research methods at Purdue University and ways that they can improve the productivity in their operations.
