These children, aged 5 to 8 years, are members of the Clover Buds, who their leader Julie Gutierrez refers to as ‘Pre 4-H’.

The Clover Buds are learning about prehistoric Arizona with visits to the Bisbee mine, dinosaur study and the creation of artwork that was displayed at the Santa Cruz County Fair. At the meeting held Sept. 7 the children played dinosaur games, with each member dressed in their dinosaur feet.
