Journey North ProjectWayne County 4-H Journey North Project

This summer our 4-H youth participated in the Junior Master Gardener program. This fall, our young people are participating in the Journey North Project through a grant provided by Thanksgiving Point. Youth at Loa and Hanksville elementary as well as Jessica Grundy’s agriculture high school class will be planting Red Emperor Tulip bulbs this fall. 

Journey North Project

In the spring, they’ll record the growth of their bulbs at the project website and watch Spring spread across the country through an online map. They’ll be able to compare their bulbs with a webcam located at Thanksgiving Point. Throughout the project, 4-H youth will be conducting experiments with soil and learning about plant growth.
