4-H Tree at "Festival of Trees"

December 2 (on Display on December 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 27 - 31)

4-H clubs are invited to help decorate a "4-H Tree" at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum's Mansion for their first annual Festival of Trees. One or more ornaments per club will be great - something that represents what you do. The challenge is to get all clubs on this tree - and to get visiting families curious and interested in 4-H.

Please contact the office to coordinate dropping off your ornaments / decoration before December 2.

4-H Photo Corps - October Challenge: Fast and Slow

Submit by November 30

Taking pictures can involve playing with time as you record moments. You can shoot quickly at a high speed or slow things down with a longer exposure and capture a photo that’s fast and slow. Experiment with your camera and share your best! Please upload your photo by November 30.

You should receive comments from the juror mentors by the end of December.

If you have any questions, please contact williams@njaes.rutgers.edu

"The NJ 4-H Photo Corps is a project where 4-H members (grades 4-13) can learn photography from experienced photographers as they take pictures each month."

Promote 4-H at local events

4-H will have a table or booth at many events in Morris County in the coming months. All 4-H families are invited to help with the set-up, talk to people about 4-H, hand out flyers, offer an activity, and bring your friendly animal (check with the promotion committee first as requirements differ for each event). It is a lot of fun! Please contact the group if you would like to be included: mc4hpromotions@gmail.com. Or simply support 4-H and the event by visiting and stopping at the 4-H table to say Hi.
