Want an accurate reading on how much rain was received on any particular day in the area. Now you can go by the Jackson Parish 4-H office located in the LSU-Ag Center office at the Charles H. Garrett Community Center in Jonesboro and check the rain gauge that has been installed.

The Jackson Parish 4-H recently partnered with CoCoRaHS which stands for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network. CoCoRaHS is a unique, non-profit, community-based network of volunteers working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail and snow). By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, the aim is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education and research applications.
