Educators from CCE Broome Ag in the classroom, RootED, and 4-H Education Center, will provide project ideas and kits to assist parents at home, to help supplement their children’s remote virtual and hybrid programs.

Classroom educators will help children and parents learn about chickens, goats, and lambs, as well as grapes, cranberries, pumpkins and apples, and families will be able to take home kits to work on.

Also educators at the 4-H Education Center at Finch Hollow will go on guided nature walks, and explore local wildlife at each of the county parks.

The “Weeks Without Walls: An Outdoor Learning Adventure��� programs will continue through early November.

Social distancing and safety practices will be in place for all classes, and masks are required to be worn by all attendees.
