or two adult volunteer leaders to head up a youth 4-H Environmental

undergraduate or graduate student or any community member.
include meeting regularly with 4-H youth (typically about ages 9-16)

the youth then teach others in the community about water
SB County 4-H is looking for one or two adult volunteers to head up
this program - ideally someone with a passion for science education
