4-H Canada - Find Your 4-H Wings

Deadline: December 17, 2017 4:00 PM  
Start Date: November 01, 2017 1:40 PM
Location: across Alberta  

Program Description:

 

Find Your 4-H Wings is an exciting campaign made possible by the generous support of TransCanada that will allow 4-H’ers to get active outdoors and learn about their winged friends!

Last year, almost 2,500 4-H members from across Canada learned about bats and their habitats thanks to Find Your 4-H Wings. They were also able to put what they learned into action by mounting bat houses in their communities.

Resources will include where they can be found, and how to support them and the environments in which they live. To encourage hands-on learning, 4-H clubs who register for Find Your 4-H Wings this year will receive a kit from 4-H Canada that includes:

  • Information about loons and their habitats
  • Leader resources and a club activity book
  • Supplies for hands-on club activities

If you don’t have loons in your area, don’t worry, the materials and resources provided will be usable with any body of water you have access to.

Leaders can use the resources provided to tailor activities based on the interests of their club and commit a flexible amount of time to complete the activities they want to pursue, across all seasons, and can retain materials for future use. Kits will be distributed in March 2018.

Find Your 4-H Wings is a program that gives 4-H members the opportunity to:

  • Get actively engaged in the outdoors, make healthy choices, and contribute to their community.

  • Learn about the importance of Canadian birds and bats native to their region and ecosystem.

  • Be active stewards of the environment and participate in hands-on activities, including building a bird or bat house.

  • Participate in group activities that explore issues related to biodiversity, endangered species and the importance of sustaining habitats.

  • Share their knowledge with others and build community awareness about all things birds and bats!

Through the Find Your 4-H Wings campaign, TransCanada has made a significant commitment to support 4-H in Canada nationally, through Provincial associations and at the local club level. 4-H Canada is pleased to have a committed partner in TransCanada that believes in the positive development of youth and to education encouraging youth to be good stewards of their environment.

Successful applicants will be notified by December 17, 2017.
