Squash Bugs!!
Squash bugs are the bane of any garden that has squash, melons, or cucurbits. Here are some tips to help you reduce the number you will have and how to control them once you have them.

At Camp Thrive, youth will learn the basics of what they need to build resilience and thrive. Belonging is an essential human need.  Youth will learn of the importance of being connected at home, with friends, and with their community.

Youth who just completed 7th - 10th grades* are invited to Camp Thrive!  This will be a week-long experience with video conferencing and at-home activities for youth and a special webinar for parents/guardians.  The purpose of Camp Thrive is for youth to learn how important their physical, emotional, and social needs are for their mental health.

Registration is now open. For more information on Camp Thrive, contact Kassie Lovan at (435)919-1322 or by email at
