Welcome to the 4-H Wildside Hiking Challenge!  We have put together a series of six hikes in Carroll County.  The challenge is for any youth and their families &  friends to get outside and enjoy some time together while staying active.   When you complete the hikes submit your hikers guide to the Carroll County 4-H office for a special one of a kind 4-H Wildside patch. This is open to anyone of any age.  You do not need to be a 4-H member to do this challenge and earn your patch.

Highbush blueberries are an important native fruit crop in New Hampshire. In their natural habitat, highbush blueberries are usually found growing along wetland margins. In home yards and garden blueberries grow best in well-drained soils that are high in organic matter. Sites that receive full-sun all day long promote maximum fruit production. Most importantly, blueberries need an acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0 in order to grow well. If the soil pH is too high the leaves may yellow and the plants will likely fail to grow.
