Serving Glenn County Since 1915
What is UC Cooperative Extension?
The University of California's 64 Cooperative Extension (UCCE) offices are local problem-solving centers. More than 400 campus-based specialists and county-based farm, home, and youth advisors work as teams to bring the University's research-based information to Californians. UCCE is a full partnership of federal, state, county, and private resources linked in applied research and educational outreach. UCCE tailors its programs to meet local needs. UCCE's many teaching tools include meetings, conferences, workshops, demonstrations, field days, video programs, newsletters and manuals. Thousands of volunteers extend UCCE's outreach, assisting with the California 4-H Youth Development Program and Master Gardener Program.
The University of California Extension was first introduced to Glenn County in 1915. However, the Agricultural Extension and Home Economics office was voted out of the county in 1927, only to be reinstated by voters in a November 1948 General Election. UCCE Glenn County provides programs tailored to meet the needs of county residents. Extension services include exceptional 4-H and Master Gardener programs, as well as expert advice for farmers and growers.
A letter from our County Director:
A Time for Reflection and Giving
During this challenging time of devastation around us, we find ourselves grasping for solutions. While it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless, we know we can turn our science into solutions to help our neighbors and community. We are currently supporting victims of the devastating fires that have plagued our community through research and education, including an evaluation of the impacts of wildfire ash on forage crops. Our 4-H Youth Development Program continues to focus on community service as an important pillar of the program.
We are currently focusing on our annual fundraising campaign and Giving Tuesday. As in years past, you will receive a letter in your mailbox and/or via email asking for your support in our research & education efforts. During this difficult time and beyond, we look forward to our work in the community and appreciate your continued support.
Very Truly Yours,
UC Cooperative Extension- Glenn County
