2019 Private Pesticide Training Schedule 

The widespread flooding and winter weather across our great state has been at the top of all of our minds, including those of 4-H youth, volunteers, staff, and alumni across Nebraska and the country. Thanks to all of you for what you’re doing.

There will be a long road to recovery, and many 4-H’ers and our supporters will want to contribute.
