County-Wide Projects

County-Wide Projects are available to any El Dorado County 4-H Member in addition to any projects available at the club level. These projects have their own schedules and meeting dates and it's up to the member to keep informed of meetings. Participating in County-Wide Projects is a great way to interact with members from other clubs who have similar interests.

Please email the leader to get information about the project, dates & times.
