Remember, ALL 4-Her’s with an animal project (except Horse and Dog) MUST take MQA training once as a junior and once as a senior. We will be using the Colorado 4-H MQA Training trailer again this year to do our MQA/PQA training in Fremont County. We will only have the trailer for two (2) days so ALL 4-Her’s that need to take MQA/PQA training MUST take it on one of these days. We will start earlier so you can come immediately after school. Note change of times and dates!
Monday, March 9, 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM, 4-H Building
Tuesday, March 10, 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM, 4-H Building
New Project—Pocket Pets
For any animal, not already a 4-H project, which lives in your home.
Can’t have a pig or goat at your house? Do you have a hamster? Frog? Gerbil? Bird? Cat?
That could be your 4-H project this year! Or better still, how about a friend who wants to join? Invite them to learn more about their pet and join 4-H!
