4-H Animal Field Day

Animal Field Day at Crystal Springs 4-H farm had nearly 100 visitors in April. The event is organized by the San Mateo County 4-H Animal Science Animal Project (ASAP) committee, which consists of adult volunteers and youth leaders from the clubs in the county. Animal Field Day is organized to teach other 4-H youth, families, and friends about raising an animal for a 4-H project and show at the local county fair.

Twenty-one youth from the Burlingame-San Mateo, Redwood City-Cañada, San Bruno, and San Carlos clubs presented on biosecurity, swine, steer, market & show rabbits, turkeys, lambs, market & dairy goats, and show & market chickens. The attendees rotated stations and were able to learn about all of the animals. All of the youth raising animals in San Mateo County 4-H will be heading to the San Mateo Fair, June 8-16. 
 
4-H Million Trees Project
 
The 4-H Million Trees Project had an acorn planting activity for the youth to plant and take home.  The 4-H Million Trees Project is a service-learning project based in San Mateo County that gives youth the opportunity to do their part in the climate crisis by planting trees.
