Get to Know 4-H

October 6, 2010
By Richard Gast, Franklin County Cornell Cooperative Extension

I recently participated in two Conservation Field Day events sponsored by the Franklin County Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program. It was a remarkable opportunity for me, and for the more than 600 fourth and fifth graders from several school districts in Franklin and Essex counties who came to learn about natural resources conservation and the environment. Representatives from agricultural and natural resources agencies including Cornell Cooperative Extension, state Department of Environmental Conservation, Franklin County Soil and Water Conservation District, the Adirondack Park Agency Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths, Paul Smiths College, the Nature Conservancy and others offered short presentations, many of which included fun, hands-on interactive activities and demonstrations geared toward conservation education.
