4-H Summer 2014

Register with Mary by calling 747-7509 or e-mailing mary@sitkawild.org. I ask that 4-H members strive for 95% attendance if signing up for the activities. Our program is about building community as well as living with the land, which is achieved by attending each activity in the series. Please Register by May 31.
