Talbot 4-H Clubs and Resources

In Talbot County, youth participate in 4-H through community clubs led by volunteers, in-school and after school programs, and community activities such as the county fair and public speaking contests. Members choose from a variety of projects including public speaking, leadership, community service, visual arts, food and nutrition, sewing, photography, animals, gardening, science/technology, and others.

Talbot County 4-H Clubs

Feel free to contact our volunteer club leaders and arrange to visit their monthly club meetings. Continue visiting club meetings until you find a club that meets your family's interests. Then the leaders and the 4-H staff can help you enroll your child if you have trouble with the online system.
