Teaching. Researching. Problem Solving.

From the grass you grow, to the trees you plant, to the water you drink, to the food you eat, to the children who love learning about rockets, but just think they’re having fun – we’re your Extension in the City. Here, you’ll find the programs, people and resources you need for youth, families, food and the environment – and all you have to do is ask.
