4-H Natural Science materials that youth may use as part of any project are the 4-H Natural Science Project Record (4-H 303LR, online only). These data sheets give young natural scientists a place to record their observations about wildlife, soils, forests, habitats, marine/tidal areas, rangelands, and water. There also are sheets for photo moni-toring and issue investigation.

Backyard and Beyond coverThe Backyards & Beyond Neighborhood Nature Clubs Community Organizational Guide and Tool Kit is intended for Club Leaders or others who would like to organize and start a club in their neighborhood. It includes A Club Leader Welcome, Five Steps to Start a Neighborhood Nature Club, Go Outside Tips, Club Explorers’ Commitment Pledge, Nature Event Calendar and Club Leader Forms.

The Backyards & Beyond Club Leader Curriculum is designed as a network of neighborhood “nature trails” with outdoor activities that are led by the Neighborhood Nature Club Leader. It includes four units with eight trails that progressively advance the connections youth make with the outdoors.
