On May 5, 4-H’ers presented the Escambia County Regional Child Advocacy Center with donated supplies from the 2015-2016 4-H community service project. This past year, Alabama 4-H, TGIF and Alabama’s Network of Child Advocacy Centers (CAC) partnered in a statewide community service project. Local 4-H members from Escambia, Conecuh and Monroe counties took part in collecting school supplies and personal care items for the Escambia County Regional CAC. Generosity is a big part of positive youth development. By allowing our youth to give back, we give them a rewarding opportunity. More than 500 items were collected from the tri-county area.
For more information on 4-H in Escambia county, contact Cindy Knowlton. For more information on 4-H in Conecuh and Monroe counties, contact Emily Dent.
The Alabama Master Naturalist program is a new statewide program whose goal is to help promote awareness, understanding, and respect of Alabama’s natural world among Alabama’s citizens and visitors. In addition, the AMN program will also develop a statewide corps of well-informed volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.

Agri-tourism can take many forms. Roadside stands and farmers’ markets offer farm-fresh produce and interaction with growers. Farms may open to the public for wildlife watching and hunting. Ag tours, on farm bed-and-breakfasts, and dude ranches give tourists the fresh air, open space, and relaxation of country life.
U-pick operations, pumpkin patches, Christmas tree farms, hay mazes, farm-animal petting zoos, wine tasting, ag heritage museums, festivals, and fairs all attract visitors.
