Iowans care about each other and their communities. That's why they have invested in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. We put the university's research to work throughout the state by providing ongoing access to education by anticipating issues, acting in catalytic ways and staying for the long haul. We are committed to Iowa's future.
We hold a variety of programs to meet the needs of our community including radon awareness, youth summer camps, pesticide applicator trainings, manure applicator trainings, healthy foods programs, daycare provider trainings and much, much more! Please contact us with any needs you may have and we would love to help put together a program to fit those needs.
Program focus areas are: Economic Development, Health & Wellbeing, Food and the Environment and 4-H and Youth Outreach.
