Benton County

Benton County Extension Service Faculty, staff, and volunteers deliver research-based information to help youth and adults solve problems, develop life skills, and manage resources wisely.

Our educators and faculty members are quickly developing new objective, research science-based remote learning opportunities to help Benton County youth and adults solve problems, develop life skills and manage resources wisely as well as to ensure you have the information you need to protect you and reinvigorate our local economies threatened by COVID-19.  We are all working remotely and available via email and phone.  You can leave a message at our main line and we will return your call as soon as possible.  (541) 713-5000
