4-H organ petting zoo workshop set at fairgrounds

Purdue Extension Jackson County has planned a 4-H organ petting zoo from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 14 at the Jackson County Fairgrounds near Brownstown.

Participants will need to park by the livestock buildings.

This workshop is open to all Jackson County 4-H members.

This Old Farm, a meat processing company, will present information about real livestock organs.

Members will learn about where their food comes from, health, anatomy and hands-on learning.

Youth in kindergarten through eighth grade need to have a chaperone present during the workshop.

4-H’ers wishing to participate should call the extension office at 812-358-6101 to preregister. When preregistering, provide an emergency contact.
