From The Mountains To The Sea Series Archive
The #FromTheMountainsToTheSea series is hosted by the Georgia 4-H Centers. These online, educational sessions highlight many of the programs available at the 4-H Centers. During March through May, each weekday at 3:00 PM, the Georgia 4-H environmental education staff either posted a session or went live on Facebook to bring our EE programming to your home: Rock Eagle 4-H Center, Burton 4-H Center, Wahsega 4-H Center, Tidelands Nature Center 4-H, Georgia 4-H at Camp Jekyll, and Fortson 4-H Center!
The original series had a reach over 180,000 and included 40 different programs!
So, we decided to offer virtual and in-person programming!
