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


  • 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.
  • 4-H Agronomy
    Agronomy is the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed, and fiber. In 4-H Agronomy, you'll learn how plants grow and how the science of agronomy is connected to business and to your community. You will have hands-on learning experiences with plants and people in your area.
  • Minnesota 4-H Festival of Nations
    The 2020 Minnesota 4-H Festival of Nations is a statewide, virtual learning opportunity that celebrates the diverse people and cultures of the world. This introductory experience is designed to support 4-H'er in learning about a group or place that's unfamiliar to them and build appreciation. These are important early steps in being culturally competent global citizens. Details are posted on the Minnesota 4-H website: Festival of Nations and 4-H Global Connections.
  • Statewide Photography Scavenger Hunt between May 1-15th
    The State 4-H Photography Committee would like to invite all 4-H members to participate in a statewide photography scavenger hunt between May 1-15.
  • A Note from Kim .....
    We are in the midst of unprecedented times right now, and everyone is being affected in some way. Wadena County 4-H is also affected, as the University of MN (4-H’s governing body) has canceled all face to face contact through the end of June.
