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.
University of Nebraska — Lincoln Extension in Douglas and Sarpy Counties (Extension in the City) helps people put UNL’s research to action in their lives, including urban programs to fit the specific needs of our community.
