Update 4/15/14: The new 4-H barn cost $119,000 and was built on land purchased by QEP to build their new Pinedale office, which opened in 2012. QEP donated 40 acres of land and stream-front property to create the Rose Skinner Preserve for 4-H programs in the county. The new facilities will allow youth living in town or subdivisions to do market livestock projects. Other programs that will eventually be held on the property include education in range management, horticulture, forage studies, riparian management, and more.
