Collecting Eclipse Glasses

Athens-Clarke County 4-H is collecting the solar eclipse viewing glasses for recycling.  Drop your glasses by the office at 2152 W. Broad St. instead of sending your used glasses to the landfill.  We are collecting them to be shared with children in other parts of the world to safely view the solar eclipse in their country.

What is 4-H?

The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society.  This mission is accomplished through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, food and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.  Athens-Clarke County offers a variety of programs including in-school meetings, competitive events including project achievement and judging teams, community service projects, and summer 4-H camp.
