Natural Resources Programs-Youth
Welcome to Jackson County's Natural Science for Youth Program
OSU Extension Service’s 4-H Youth Natural resources Program (YNRP) has reached over 16,500 Jackson County youth since its establishment in 2004.
Students ranging from rural to urban areas, kindergarten through 12th grade, including minority population and economically disadvantaged youth have been involved in the program’s summer camps, after-school programing, one-day events and through educational kits available for check-out.
The Youth Natural Resources Program is designed to reach youth with the goal of increasing awareness of natural resources and their uses, the interconnectedness of watershed ecosystems, and the importance of conservation and stewardship.
