News & Announcements

Welcome to the new OSU Extension website

OSU Extension has been serving Oregon for more than 100 years, and our previous website launched in 2011. It was time for an upgrade! Click the title of this announcement to read more about the upgrade and share your feedback.

Making the Future Better through Teaching, Service & Research!

In a year's time, the Harney County Extension program contacts an average of 20,000 people through workshops, seminars, committee meetings, volunteer programs, field days and through 4-H and Ag Extension newsletter as well as individual consultations. This does not include media contacts.

Educational programs/resources are offered in the areas of:

  • Agriculture and Natural Resources
  • 4-H/Youth Development
  • Family Community Health

Extension programs utilize volunteer outreach in the areas of 4-H. These volunteers receive training and educational materials in exchange for service they provide for the 4-H Extension program. We currently have 69 volunteer 4-H leaders and parents, 170 4-Hers and 32 active 4-H clubs with projects ranging from livestock, horses, rabbits, dogs, leathercrafts, photography, cooking, sewing, knitting and scrapbooking.

OSU Extension is a partnership of USDA at the federal level, OSU at the state level, and Harney County.
