Benton Co. 4-H Record

This brief excerpt from History of Benton County Arkansas, Volume 1, describes the origins of the Benton County 4-H Club and a couple of trips they took to the Illinois River and Lake Wedington. Today, the Benton County 4-H Clubs are actively involved in the Illinois River Watershed Partnership’s volunteer events, and members continue to enjoy trips to the Illinois River.
