4-H In Your Polk County Backyard

During the NC stay-at-home order of 2020, Polk County 4-H found itself with plenty of knowledge and explorations to share, but no 4-Hers to share them with! So, we worked hard to figure out a creative way to help families use the time they had together getting outside and hands-on with nature right in their backyards.

The result of that was a series of quests that aren’t limited to the shut-down period. Families can use these investigations of soil, plants, insects, reptiles, and amphibians anytime to discover the natural world just outside their back door.

Each downloadable issue includes:

  • Information specifically geared to the flora, fauna, and critters right here in our Thermal Belt region
  • Videos to help 4-Hers visualize important learning concepts
  • Hands-on activities and crafts that bring science to life right before your eyes
  • Printable resources that kids and teens can take outside with them to log their observations
