A recent donation by the Barceloux Tibesaart Foundation has provided all new 4-H Water Wizards curriculum, a hands-on watershed model, and supplies to deliver to the different schools in Glenn County for youth in school enrichment programs, reports 4-H Community Education Specialist, Christine Kampmann. This includes groups or classrooms of youth receiving a sequence of learning experiences in cooperation with school officials during school hours to support the school curriculum. Direct teaching is done by UCCE 4-H YDP staff, trained 4-H adult volunteers, teen leaders, classroom teachers or other school personnel using 4-H YDP curriculum or other educational materials.

            The 4-H Water Wizard Project is a 12-week science education project that is geared toward 4th-6th grade students about the importance of water. Delivered to children in their classroom, students will participate in hands-on learning experiences that encourage inquiry, teach basic information about, and develop an awareness of water in their communities. Over the 12 weeks, students will learn about the water cycle, their community watershed, and how to keep the waterways clean, discover water density and learn the science of soap and suds. Also, as a part of the curriculum, youth take action on water issues in their community, by choosing and planning a community service-learning project.

Glenn County Youth to Celebrate

National 4-H Week: October 2-8


Every year, National 4-H Week sees millions of youth, parents, volunteers and alumni come together to celebrate the many positive youth development opportunities offered by 4-H. A campaign was created by National 4-H Council to rally support for Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program and identify solutions to eliminate the opportunity gap that affects 55 million kids across America. The theme for this year’s National   4-H Week is “Opportunity4All.” 4-H Brings opportunity and experiences to kids from all backgrounds.

With so many children struggling to reach their full potential, 4-H believes that young people, in partnership with adults, can play a key role in creating a more promising and equitable future for youth, families and communities across the country. In 4-H, we believe every child should have an equal opportunity to succeed. We believe every child should have the skills they need to make a difference in the world.
