4-H Water Wizards is an afterschool mentoring program focused on water resources, ranging from local watersheds to marine ecosystems.  This program uses a combination of lab, field and service learning opportunities to help raise youth awareness and knowledge of environmental resources and issues. 4-H Water Wizards also has a strong connection to academic and professional development and provides older youth campus tours, job shadows, internships and similar opportunities. Contact us to learn more!


  • Passion, excitement, and interest! Youth should be a part of the team, have fun, and come ready to enjoy their experience.
  • Members should attend most of the classes and field trips.  We will work with members to make up missed activities.
  • Everyone is required to complete 15 hours of volunteer service.  This may sound like a lot, but 15 hours goes quickly when youth are having fun and passionate about making a difference!
