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.
