Hello Sonoma County 4-H!!

How has your club been volunteering this year? Please have a youth write into the office so it can be shared with all of us via this newsletter.

Recycled Art for Earth Day, April 22 or Every day
Although Earth day has come and gone this is a great project for our youth. Youth will use the engineering process in this activity to design, draw and build using recyclable materials to create works of art. Use this activity to let their imaginations run wild! For examples, please see the PBS learning media website.
These are great opportunities for 4-H parents, volunteers, and youth to participate and get excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)!
They can be an opportunities for STEM-focused field trips, projects and programs.
You can also find this list on the state 4-H STEM home page.

Community Service Opportunity for a fire victim
I am a former 4-H community club and project leader for Wild Oak 4-H. I lost my home and farm in the fire in October and am looking for a youth organization or individuals to help us construct a vaux swift nesting tower on our farm to replace the chimney they were nesting in the past few years. I have a book and set of plans and a location picked out. I can provide some or all of the materials if necessary but I don't have a work shop or tools to construct it. I realize that you are nearing the end of the year and we are in a time crunch on this because the swifts have arrived and will start nesting next month. I hope you can find a club that is willing to take this on.

Fire victims in need of a new home!
These sheep have been on quite the long journey! Originally displaced by the Sonoma County Firestorms, these 13 fire victims came to stay at Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue temporarily while their owner could find alternative pasture. After 3 months at our facility, they outgrew their pasture here, and went to go and stay temporarily with one of our dedicated volunteers, Cheryl Burner. Because this herd is a mixture of ewes and rams, Cheryl now has a herd of 20 sheep including rams, ewes, and lambs. Needless to say, she feels quite overrun! We need to find permanent placement for 16 of these sheep. These are Barbados Blackbelly sheep, a breed of domestic sheep from the Caribbean island of Barbados. They are grazers and great at clearing land! If you are interested in this displaced herd, please contact Cheryl Burner at (707) 664-0626. Thank you!
