Water Banner


Kentucky has over 91,000 miles of rivers and streams, and over 225,000 acres of ponds, lakes, and reservoirs. The Water Science Program engages 4-H members in a variety of hands-on activities and experiences that foster an increased understanding and appreciation for Kentucky's water resources, watersheds, and water health. 

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity. This program fosters mastery by learning about watersheds, water quality and quantity in rural and urban settings, water conservation, best management practices, and much more, belonging by interacting and connecting with adults and youth with similar interests, independence by practicing leadership skills and independent thinking, and generosity by participating in community service and citizenship activities. Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
