Extension Office plans for Spring Break; upcoming events

Lucky Charms Bunny Club with presenter Katy Maughan kicked off last year’s 4-H Spring Break in perfect Easter fashion!

Last year, the Extension Office staff and 4-H volunteers brought a fun week of Spring Break classes to the Event Center, and this year they are doing it again.  Beginning Monday March 25th and running until Thursday March 28th, the week will feature daily events, most of which are free and open to ages 8-18.  Many of the events count as Livestock meetings in the 4-H program, though only the Equine Day Camp is limited to current members of a 4-H program.  

Events throughout the week will include a craft day with Daisy Hollow’s Chris Jensen, Archery 101 with Bracken Henderson, Art with Tina Bullcreek, Cupcake decorating class, several animal workshops, and a Scavenger Hunt planned and hosted by the Teen Leaders Club.

Some of the events will have class size limits, and a few will require a small fee.  Specific information about those requirements and the meeting times during the week will be made available once they are finalized for the event.  

The Extension Office welcomes everyone out to the program.  Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication of program information or reasonable accommodations can contact Sawyer Fonnesbeck by March 18 at 459 S Main in Malad, or call (208) 766-2243.

Other events on the calendar for the Extension Office include a Forage School presentation on March 7, from 1-4.  The class will cover topics including the Idaho hay outlook, weed control, hay crop rotation, and forage research.  Registration is $15 at the door, and the session counts as 1 Pesticide credit towards licensing.

On March 27, Bracken Henderson will return to Malad as the result of a number of requests to host a spring tree pruning class at 6:00 p.m.

On March 28, Equine School will look at Dentistry education, also at 6:00 p.m.

On April 17, a class on spring lawn care and irrigation will be held.

And on April 18 and 24, classes on water bath canning and pressure canning will be held.

All event will be held at the Oneida County Event Center, and hosted by the Extension Office.  Events are always in the works at the office, so follow the University of Idaho Extension, Oneida County Office Facebook page to keep up with current events or find information about becoming a member of the growing 4-H program.
