One event on May 11, 2021 at 7:00 pm

This FREE series is open to 4-H and non-4-H youth ages 12-19 years.  Join 4-H staff as we take a look into life working with fisheries and wildlife! Follow along as we climb through bogs, peer into bear dens, mist net songbirds, snorkel for fish, or perhaps even tag deer. Meet researchers, learn about their field work, and the education and career path they've followed to get there.

Monthly sessions will be held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7pm EST through May 2021.

Each 30 minute session will feature 1-2 guest researchers. Youth will be encouraged to ask questions to learn more through a live Q&A with scientists.
