Cloverbuds (5-6 year olds)

Welcome to the River Valley District. The 4-H Staff is thrilled to have you and your family as a part of our growing 4-H community.

Cloverbuds (5 – 6 year olds)

We are pleased to offer 4-H Cloverbuds, a free educational program designed specifically for youth ages five and six (as of January 1). Children of this age have distinctive learning characteristics and developmental needs that are different from older youth who participate in 4-H.
