HUDSON, N.Y. — Does your teen love animals and want to learn more about different species? Is your teen interested in working with animals? This program will fit the bill so have them join our new 4-H Vet Science Club! This program will introduce youth to the importance of animal health in a wide variety of species. Youth will hear from experts in the vet science field as well as engage in hands-on activities and learning.
The 4-H Veterinary Science Club will help your teen explore and learn more about animal health. It also allows youth to appreciate the importance of good management and sanitation practices in keeping animals healthy and happy. Our program will run from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Extension Education Center, in Hudson NY. Our meetings will be held on Wednesdays: January 15, January 29, and February 6. We will have two field trips, one to a farm on Saturday, March 21st and one to Cornell Vet School Open House on Saturday, April 18th.
Youth will be enrolled as 4-H members and will gain access to all of the wonderful programs, classes and activities hosted by the 4-H Program of Columbia and Greene Counties. We look forward to sparking your child’s interest in agriculture. This is a first come first serve class that will only be accepting the first 20 youth ages 12 to 19 so be sure to sign up quickly.
