A passion for birds and poultry first drew Sarah* 4-H. That shy 9-year-old Sarah grew up in 4-H, and 6 years later is a fearless community leader. She recently chaired the poultry area of the West Marin Fair, served as clerk at the County Fair, and taught countywide poultry showmanship workshops for other 4-Hers. She launched a service project through which other 4-H members build barn owl boxes and donate them to anyone who wants to help the project and support the owl population. Her passion for birds and 4-H also led her to create a new countywide birding project based on the Audubon Society curriculum. Recently Sarah was selected to serve on the State Animal Science Education Committee and honored with the William H. Danforth “I Dare You” Leadership Award.
