The 4-H Rabbit Project provides youth a fun, hands-on learning experience that develops life skill and teaches valuable information.
The project is open to 4-H members ages 5-18 who reside in one of the counties located in the Pee Dee Region. Each project participant will have the opportunity to participate in the Pee Dee Region as well as 4-H sanctioned rabbit project shows.
