Its aim is to offer an possibility for the young people of Mulgimaa to participate on study-trip of Abja and Karhuseutu 4H.

Young people want to educate themselves about Finnish cultural heritage through making films, to do something with their hands and to meet local sights and activities of Karhuseutu 4H. Young people will visit The Ark Nature Centre with instructors in September 2011 and after visiting the adventure trail they will do different things with their hands. They will also visit the Many Culture Centre in Pori town. Young people can spend their spare time safely, purposeful and quality on these study-trips. Young people learn how to make friends from other culture-room, they will learn about local culture-life, historical heritage in Karhuseutu area, they unity between them will grow, their parents won't worry about their kids and young people will stay in the area to retain the heritage of Mulgimaa. They will also like to retain the safe environment in local area so that young people could live safely.
