LOCAL FOUNDATION SUPPORTS GLENN COUNTY 4-H
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.
The 4-H Water Wizard Project empowers youth to use the information they

2022 4-H Window Display Results
During the week of October 2-8, 2022 Glenn County 4-H celebrated National 4-H Week with window displays at local businesses. The theme this year was “#Opportunity4All!” Great job and congratulations to each participating 4-H club. The window displays looked amazing!
Glenn County 4-H would also like to thank the evaluators for taking time out of their busy schedules to evaluate our National 4-H Week Window Displays. The following are the results from the judging: 1st Place - Willows 4-H Club ($100.00 Club Award); 2nd Place - Clover 4-H Club ($75.00 Club Award); 3rd Place – Capay 4-H Club ($50.00 Club Award). All displays received gold ribbons by earning 75% or higher from the rubric.
A special thank you goes out to the following local businesses for allowing us to use their facility: Country Pumpkins, Orland (Capay 4-H Club display); Carl’s Feed, Willows (Clover 4-H Club display); Glenn County Farm Bureau, Orland (Lake 4-H Club display); Buckaroo’s Wild West (Plaza 4-H Club display); Orland Meats, Orland (Schaffert 4-H Club display); and the store front in the Starbucks and Subway parking lot, Willows (Willows 4-H Club display). This outreach effort would not be possible without our generous supporters. Thank you Glenn County!
