Natural Resources

Description

The Natural Resources Program engages 4-H members in a variety of hands-on activities and experiences that foster an increased understanding and appreciation for Kentucky's natural resources. Projects and activities are offered in the areas of environmental science, entomology, forestry, geology, soils, water, and wildlife.  

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 increasing environmental literacy, 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).

 

Contact your county extension office for more information (link).  The 4-H agent or other staff person will be happy to answer your questions.
