Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI)
HPIA was recently detected in chickens in Utah. Although it is not a danger to humans, it is very contagious and lethal in chickens. Infected wild waterfowl primarily spread the virus as they migrate and encounter open water sources and domestic waterfowl and poultry. Close contact with infected flock mates and contaminated water sources is the most likely infection source for backyard poultry. Avian influenza poses a significant danger to both backyard poultry and commercial operations in Utah.
 
4-H Entrepreneurs Registration
The 4-H Entrepreneur program teaches youth how to start (or grow) their own business to sell products or services. Youth who attend the FREE 4-H Entrepreneur workshops in our county have the opportunity to host a booth for their business at The Summit County Fair and Park Silly Sunday Market, where they will sell their products/services directly to the public. Youth participants will learn-by-doing in this program – they create real businesses, and can make real sales!
 
Needs Assessment Survey
We would love to offer programs, classes, and workshops on subjects most popular in the community. We want to serve all communities in Summit County, and we hope you will take the time to fill out this survey to help us know the high-priority needs in your part of the county.
