Cooperative Extension puts useful, research-based information at your finger tips! 

In addition to what you'll find here on our website, we offer free or low-cost workshops on many topics that may be useful to you and your family. Our staff works with local residents to identify community issues and needs and to create appropriate strategies and programs to address those needs. We invite you to explore our website, check out our upcoming events, then give us a call or visit one of our Education Centers to learn more. We're here to help, with information and people you can trust!
