  • We are so very excited about our Extension exhibits at this year’s Carroll County Fair.

    Be sure to stop by to see 4-H and open class exhibits in the exhibit trailer. Also be sure to attend the different livestock shows and animals in the barn. 

    Children exhibiting in 4-H or youth divisions are so proud to see the ribbons they have won. We are so proud of the wonderful open class exhibits showcasing the accomplishments of everyone.

  • Watching wildlife is a really fun and exciting activity. It can be very enjoyable to watch wildlife in their natural state in our surroundings. This time of year can be especially exciting because the young wild animals can be seen.

    If we are outside, we may come across young wild animals that appear to be abandoned or orphaned. The big question is what should we do about it?

    First and foremost, do not bring the animal in your home for care. This may be the worst thing you can do for these young animals.
