This county-wide project focuses on teaching youth members about healthy living. To meet the needs of today’s youth, this project seeks to address national issues including nutrition and physical fitness, safety and personal wellness. It provides an opportunity for youth members to collaborate and learn with peers from different clubs.
It's that time of year again. 4-H is starting up and it's time to get some community service hours in while having some fun. My name is Maeve Keegan and as part of my All-Star project there is a beach clean-up at San Gregorio State Beach on September 14th from 9am to noon. This is a great opportunity to get in your hours for your record book and have some fun at the beach with fellow 4-hers. The first clean up was so much fun and you can find some cool objects like tires. If you are interested in coming or have questions please feel free to email me at email@example.com
Become a Part of the 4-H Million Trees Project
If you are in seventh grade or older, you have an opportunity here, in San Mateo County, to become a project member. By joining us, you can help us to advance the Million Trees project. As a project member, you have the opportunity to write grant proposals to gain funding for plantings, write news articles, and also to be interviewed on television programs. Those are some of the ways that we educate others about the importance of trees and gather support for our project. Most importantly, you work with a group of fun youths to plan, organize, and participate in local tree plantings.
This is a County-wide project so teenagers from any San Mateo County 4-H club can join.
You can also help 4HMT by organizing a tree planting event this year as part of your 4-H club’s monthly community service project.
If you would like to participate in a planting, we have one coming up at Flood Park in Menlo Park on October 27th from 10am until 3pm. Come and bring your friends and family. You’ll have fun digging and planting, and you’ll feel good about beautifying the park for users, and for helping to slow the global climate change. And, we’ll have yummy snacks. It’ll be a great experience!
Look us up on our website at www.4hmilliontrees.org, “Like” us on Facebook, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want any other information about the 4-H Million Trees Project, you can call our project leader Tom Webber at (650) 892-7208.
We hope that you will join us as a project member or come participate at our upcoming tree planting.
Remember “Every day is a good day to plant a tree.”
