4-H Exploration Days will take place June 21 to 23, 2017. It is designed for young people ages 11 to 19 and involves about 2,500 participants from all parts of Michigan in a multitude of hands-on learning sessions, field trips and recreation opportunities at Michigan State University's campus.
Registration for the spring season of Farm Sprouts, our farm and nature-based preschool program, is now open!
We'll have much to do with the birth of lambs and goat kids, the arrival of the calves, and the hatching of many fuzzy chicks. Farm Sprouts will explore plant and animal life cycles, vermicomposting, pollinators, and all the farm has to offer as it comes to life after the chilly winter.
Early literacy, mathematics, engineering, and the arts are incorporated into our program, along with Spanish as Foreign Language. Children develop social and emotional skills as they collaborate on meaningful and purposeful projects as a part of our farm community. We look forward to a spring season filled with discovery and learning!
