Happy #NationalBatWeek! Reminder to avoid seasonal caves and mines that serve as homes to hibernating #bats to help protect bat populations. Experts believe that when bats are disturbed during hibernation periods, it forces them to raise their body temperatures, which causes their fat reserves to be depleted. This affects their energy levels and places the bats in a comprised state, which can often lead to death.

Our first Wise Warriors 4-H Club meeting at Wise Middle/Intermediate School was a gas, to say the least. The balloon/water bottle is a model of a working cow's rumen (the balloon is still expanding back at the 4-H office), and, the ever popular jack-o-lantern explosion got the year off to a fun start!!

Sorry I missed this yesterday.... thank you farmers!!

Today, on #NationalFarmersDay, we recognize the hard work of our farmers—the one percent of our population that feeds the remaining 99 percent—and celebrate the vibrant agricultural industry in New York State. From the food we feed our families, to the stunning flowers and greenery that beautify our homes and communities, New York farmers have so much to offer. We celebrate their hard work and offer our sincerest gratitude for their contributions to our state and our lives.

Today is Indigenous People's Day. On this day we are taking time to reflect on the vast, long-established diverse cultures and communities that existed before the arrival of colonizers, and continue to persevere today. We are thinking about the impact our ancestors had on these communities and how we, in our work in Youth Development can be active participants in restoring equity, access, justice, and opportunity to Indigenous youth.

As CEO of the Erie County Agricultural Society, Jessica Underberg, mentioned in the press conference following the cancellation of the 2020 Erie County Fair... "Our Ag Team is meeting as we speak to come up with an event for the youth"... and here it is folks! The WNY Youth in Ag Bonanza will be a “reduced spectator” series of livestock and animal shows that will take place on the Erie County Fairgrounds over the course of three weekends in August (8/6-8/8, 8/13- 8/15, 8/20-8/22). The goal of the program is to provide youth, who have had limited opportunities this summer to show and compete with their animals, a venue to keep the ag community growing during 2020. This event will not be open to the public but only for competitors and their immediate families. “Despite historic and unprecedented changes to summer traditions, the ECAS is committed to the youth of Western New York State who have worked with their animals for months,” said Underberg. Children involved in agriculture have invested their hearts, minds and financial resources into these youth development projects. It is our goal that the WNY Youth in Ag Bonanza will provide a hands-on learning experience that will continue to develop and recognize these hard-working children for their efforts.The show will take place in the designated agricultural zones on the Fairgrounds and will be open to all youth competitors from the eight Western New York Counties. These include Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Genesee, Orleans, Niagara and Wyoming. Competitors will be able to compete in livestock judging and showmanship with dogs, horses, dairy cattle, dairy goats, poultry, rabbits, beef cattle, llamas, swine and sheep. We are excited to be able to bring you this opportunity this summer! Stay tuned to this page and the website http://www.the-fairgrounds.com/wnyyouthagbonanza/ for more information!
