The Extension Office is hosting its summer workshop series for children ages 8 to 18 years old during June and July. 

Summer Fun Shops began last Thursday with a Fishing Derby at Warrior Camp. The fun continued today at Oakville Indian Mounds and Education Center with County Extension Coordinator Donna Shanklin.

During the Fun Shop, Project Wild, participants created their own wildlife journals from cardboard and duct tape and explored the outdoors from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Next Thursday, June 13, Project Wild will continue at Oakville, and children who participate will focus on insects and mammals. 

A Fun Shop will also be held at the Lawrence County Extension Office on Tuesday, June 11, with SNAP Educator Jennifer Palmer from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. During the Dancin’ Fun with Jennifer sessions, Palmer gets the kids moving in a fun dance instruction that also incorporates healthy eating and living.

On Tuesday, June 18, the Shooting Sports Fun Shop will be held at Iron Rail Arena with 4-H Volunteer Shotgun Leader Keith Terry, 4-H Program Assistant Marsha Terry and 4-H Agent Kenneth Gamble. A time for the workshop is still to be determined. Class size is limited to 20.

The 2019 Summer Fun Shops are made possible by the following instructors and facilitators: 4-H Agent Kenneth Gamble, Town Creek Librarian Sharon Green, Food Safety Agent Susan Hill, SNAP Educator Jennifer Palmer, Home and Grounds Agent Allyson Shabel, County Extension Coordinator Donna Shanklin, 4-H Volunteer Leader Shotgun Keith Terry, 4-H Program Assistant Marsha Terry, and Animal Science & Forages Agent Paul Vining.

The Lawrence County Extension Office is located at 13075 Alabama Highway 157 in Moulton.
