Now that school is out, are you looking for activities for your kids? Check out what Newaygo County 4-H has to offer this summer. With over 33 4-H clubs throughout Newaygo County to select from, 4-H has something for everyone! Through a variety of projects - from gardening to woodworking to photography and arts and crafts– 4-H youth have fun learning and develop life skills through all kinds of projects. If raising animals interests your kids, consider joining a 4-H club that centers on dogs, rabbits, chickens, swine, sheep, cattle, and horses to name a few. 4-H’s hands-on approach gives young people guidance, tools, and encouragement to make great things happen.
If that isn’t enough, join us at Legends Ranch in Bitely on Wednesday, July 13 from 9:30 am – 2:00 pm. 4-H families will engage in numerous environmental hands-on activities with staff of Legends Ranch as well as walk the trails and observe the wildlife on the grounds. The Wildlife Center of Legends Ranch which features 2,500 animals from around the world will be open for families to explore as well. Bring your lunch and discover this hidden gem.
Newaygo County 4-H will be returning to the Gerber Baby Food Festival on Wednesday, July 20 to host the 4-H Petting Zoo from 10:00 am – 11:00 am and 4-H Activities Stations from 12:00 noon – 2:00 pm. Families will have the thrilling experience of coming face-to-face with farm animals, learn about the breeds, and how to care for them. Following the Petting Zoo, be sure to stop over at the 4-H Activity Stations to create pipe cleaner insects, solar bracelets, and leather-stamp wristbands to take home.
