Potter County 4-H Programs Still Going Strong

March 28th, 2018

Programs being provided by Penn State Extension, supporting farming, youth development, environmental protection and other aspects of rural living, were paraded in front of Potter County Commissioners Doug Morley, Paul Heimel and Susan Kefover this week at the Potter County Education Center. Here, Toby Neal, 4-H educator, details programs operated year-round to educate young people, help them explore areas of interest and possible careers, and develop social skills and leadership. There are 13 active clubs in Potter County with a total membership of roughly 180, Neal said. Nearly three dozen adults are involved as leaders. The commissioners also heard from Nicole Carutis, agriculture; Heather McKean, water resources; and Kathy Mitchell, master gardening and environmental/conservation education. Additionally, they learned details of activities that have been launched to control invasive species in the region.
