The Wasco County Extension Service is your link to Oregon State University. We provide life long learning opportunities in the areas of youth development, home gardening, family & community health, natural resources, sweet cherries and dryland crops. Our county agents are Oregon State University faculty members who extend the University to Wasco County residents through meetings, workshops, 4-H Youth Programs, short courses, tours, newsletters and one-on-one consultations. We also keep the University informed about research and informational needs of the community. County faculty bring the University to you.
