Venango Co. 4-H Club Outreach
On February 9, 2023, our own Ag Tech Jane Price met up with Clarion Conservation District’s Education Specialist and ACT Tech Hannah Bequeath to provide a presentation to the 4-H Club, American Made, out of Knox, PA. American Made reached out to their local Conservation Districts to learn more about what those agencies do and how they help the local Commonwealth protect natural resources.
In 4‑H programs, kids and teens complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and civic engagement. A mock farm scenario helped the kids get engaged and they talked about what resource concerns could happen on a farm like stormwater issues, manure management, and nutrient management. They then worked hands on and observed the Enviroscape which showed everything they discussed in a 3D landscape. It was a fun and educational evening!
