The new 4-H programming year starts this month and now is the perfect time to become part of the largest youth development organization in the state, 4-H. The Kalamazoo County program has lots of exciting projects for youth to get involved in from livestock to robotics and beyond. Don’t have farm animals? No worries! We have 4-H clubs focused on arts, science, tabletop role playing games, and even dogs!

It was formed in 2008 with the belief that a change was necessary in shoreline development practices in Michigan from high impacting methods that change the natural riparian condition to healthier and sustainable erosion control practices.
