Welcome to Trinity County!
4-H helps young people discover and develop their potential. It provides a wide variety of educational and enrichment experiences.
Master Gardeners extend UC research-based information to the public about home horticulture. In exchange for the training and materials received from the University of California, master gardeners perform volunteer services in a variety of venues.
Our program promotes healthy lifestyles in Trinity County by addressing childhood obesity, family and consumer well-being, food security and food safety. We serve low income people with quality food and nutrition education programs and supervise the UC CalFresh Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Nutrition Education Program (FSNEP).
The forestry program works with private forest landowners, registered professional foresters, agencies, and forest industry personnel, with an emphasis on educational outreach programs focused on forest stewardship and wildfire protection.

The Master Gardeners have been busy busy propagating all kinds of plants for the 10th Annual Plant & Seed Exchange. Some of the veggies go to the Youth Garden at the Young Family Ranch and Children's Garden, but we still have plenty left to give away. See you on Saturday!
