4H River Kids is a new program that Monroe & Conecuh County 4H has started this year. Youth ages 9-18 are invited to participate in the 4-H RiverKids Program to learn basic paddling skills, water safety, and more about outdoor recreation. By working closely with our partner, Alabama Scenic River Trail Association (ASRT), our goal is to increase the use of Alabama’s waterways, increase the knowledge and awareness of environmental and resource management issues, and incorporate service projects into our fun.
We were able to aquire kayaks, paddles and life jackets, but needed some way to transport the equipment as well as provide storage when not in use. This trailer will be used to transport the River Kids equipment, and it will be housed at the Monroe County Extension Office when not in use.
