The Deep River Helping Hands 4-H Club donates life jackets to Poweshiek County Conservation
Members of the Deep River Helping Hands 4-H Club recently donated 10 PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices) in two sizes to the Poweshiek County Conservation. The donation is valued at $500.
“We are so excited to have all of these young people who appreciate and are interested in the programs Poweshiek County Conservation offers,” said Amy Andrews, naturalist at the PCC. “We partner with 4-H on a number of programs including a 4-H Nature Club, Wildlife Habitat Education Program quiz bowl team, and individual clubs frequently do activities at the park such as kayaking, geocaching, and archery.”
Andrews said kayaking is a hugely popular program with 4-H Clubs, school groups and individuals across the county.
“We have all the equipment needed to get folks out on the water safely, and all of our programs are free,” noted Andrews. “Kayaking gear can be pricy so having the Deep River Helping Hands 4-H Club support our program really shows that these youth value making outdoor recreation accessible in Poweshiek County.”
