With the generous support of the local United Way of Chatham County and a valued partnership with the Pittsboro-based Livestock Conservancy, Chatham County 4-H will be offering free curriculum and supplies to approximately 30 total classrooms across the county this spring. Once again this year, the program will utilize rare breed poultry from area TLC members, allowing students to take part in conservative efforts first-hand.

The 4-H Embryology Program offers a unique experiential learning opportunity for educators to supplement their classroom curriculum with research-based material supplied by NC State University and National 4-H. More specifically, the program is aligned to address Essential Standard 2.L.1:  Understanding Animal Life Cycles, and should be used to enhance classroom science essential standard curriculum.

Tentative Incubation Dates

Session 1:  March 2nd – 27th, 2015

Session 2:  April 13th – May 15th, 2015
