OSU website links Oregonians to practical information

February 10, 2003

CORVALLIS - Oregon's best-known source of outside-the-classroom educational information, the Oregon State University Extension Service, has redesigned its website to make it easier for Oregonians to find answers to practical questions online.

With a simple search on the website you now can find experts, publications and other educational materials in areas that range from how to increase profits and protect the environment in agriculture, forestry and the seafood industry to how to do a better job of parenting, preparing food safely and using computers in everyday life.

The OSU website is at: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/

Other examples of materials on the website:

A video will take you into the salmon's world to learn about watershed health. You can learn about WebWizards, an award-winning OSU 4-H program for high school-age kids, and you can read scientists' findings from a joint university report on Klamath Basin water allocations.
