The Sitka 4H Club will meet for a potluck dinner from 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at the Sitka Sound Science Center. The club is sponsored by the Sitka Conservation Society and the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service (which oversees the Alaska 4H program).
This will be a great meeting for new families interested in joining the program, which started earlier this year. There will be discussions about various 4H projects and activities for the remainder of the school year. Right now there are two groups, one for grades K-3 and one for grades 4-5.
Over the course of the year, 4H club members might work on shelter building, trapping, tracking, survival kits, map and compass skills, canning deer stew, baking, fire building and more. “Our hope is to get students to connect to the amazing environment they live in,” said Sitka Conservation Society Community Sustainability Organizer Tracy Gagnon, who coordinates the Sitka 4H Club.
