Living In Florida’s Environment – Project LIFE

The Florida 4-H State Council is proud to continue the State Service Project – “Living in Florida’s Environment.”

Each year the State Project Committee of the Executive Board recommends activities in which 4-Her’s can participate that will carry out the state wide community service project of the Florida 4-H Council. This year, the committee decided that the theme for 2017-2019 will be “Living In Florida’s Environment (LIFE)”. This project is focused on creating a greener tomorrow by hosting beach cleanups, planting trees, and participating in citizen science activities.

At 4-H University we will focus on Disaster Recovery.  Living in Florida’s Environment also means being ready to restore what is damaged from all types of disasters.
