Extension is expanding its online education and resources while in-person events and classes are canceled.


  • 4-H Healthy Summer Living Challenges
    Summer is here and 4-H is ready to get you moving across the state of Minnesota! Join other 4-H members from Freeborn, Rice, Steele and Waseca Counties to track how many miles we can put on!
  • State Fair cancellation
    Extension is creating alternate experiences for 4-He'rs and others. "It won’t replace the Fair but we are committed to meaningful programming," says Dean Durgan.
  • 2020 4-H Camp at Home!
    SET YOUR SIGHTS ON NEW HEIGHTS! Rice County Campers will spend three days and two nights at their own homes enjoying games, songs, crafts, educational programs, great food from their own kitchens, cabin life, outdoor adventures, reflective campfires and more!
  • Child Development Workshop
    The 4-H Babysitting Adventures is a chance for teens to get together virtually over Zoom and learn about child development and create hands-on activities for the young children they care for. Join us for this fun and interactive opportunity!
  • 4-H Family Game Nights
    Are you looking for something fun to do and ways to connect with other members of our 4-H family? Plan to join 4-H members and families from FRSW (Freeborn, Rice, Steele, & Waseca) Counties for some game time!
