Welcome to 4-H in Tompkins County! All youth activities offered by Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension fall under the 4-H umbrella, whether they happen after school, in the summer, or as a workshop, club, camp, or special event. 4-H programs are offered in a wide variety of formats and places because they're designed to fit the interests and needs of the diverse young people who live in our rural and urban communities. Over 4,000 young people aged 5 to 19 take part in 4-H activities in Tompkins County each year. The Tompkins County 4-H Program includes 4-H Clubs, the 4-H Urban Outreach Program, Rural Youth Services, and Primitive Pursuits.
Learn the art of fly-tying from local experts in this 9 class series for youth and adults on Saturdays from Jan. 13 to March 10, offered by 4-H and our local Trout Unlimited chapter.
