Grant County

The Oregon State University Extension Service provides research-based knowledge and education that strengthens Grant County's economy, sustains natural resources, and promotes healthy communities, families, and individuals.

Our Extension educators (staff) 'extend' Oregon State University to the community by teaching new skills and providing problem-solving based on university research. We provide education on agriculture, horticulture, range, forestry, youth development, family & community health; nutrition and food preservation. We also support the local community in their academic and career advancement goals.
