West Central Region 4-H Events

Welcome 4-H Community,

This is your place to find everything that is happening within our region (Marion, Polk, Yamhill, Benton and Linn Counties).  You will start to notice more regional programming and activities that are available to youth outside of your own county.  Please take advantage of as many of these opportunities as you can.  They are a great way to meet new people and gain more knowledge about your project area.
