Palo Alto County Extension & Outreach has put together a new set of 4-H workshops for this spring that are going to be offered to all 4-Hers in the county.  Pre-registrations are due 1 week before each workshop so we know how many to plan for and so supplies can be purchased if needed.  Sign up now so you don't miss out on some great project learning!  Non-4-Hers are welcome for an additional $2 fee/workshop.
