Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts: mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity. The Kentucky 4-H BioBlitz Event fosters mastery by learning about and identifying plant and animal species, belonging by interacting and connecting with adults and youth with similar interests, independence by applying independent thinking, and generosity by participating in a citizen science event. Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
