Living In Florida’s Environment – Project LIFE

The Florida 4-H State Council is proud to be continuing 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. The theme for 2017-2019 is “Living In Florida’s Environment (LIFE)”. This project is focused on creating a greener tomorrow by hosting environmental cleanups, planting trees, and participating in citizen science activities.

The State Project Guide below contains sample project ideas and a report back system, so you can share your work with others across the state.


Project Completion

The State Project Committee encourages all youth to participate in at least one environmental service project this year. The committee would also like to recognize the youth who participate. Once a project is completed, please record it on the project report-back sheet found in the Project LIFE Guidebook linked in the toolkit below. These record sheets will need to be submitted to Grace Carter by July 1, 2019.

You can also submit your reports digitally here.
