What is University of Nevada Cooperative Extension?

We’re the outreach college of the University that brings you information to solve problems and deal with critical issues. We have 20 offices to serve you, whether you live on a ranch near the remote Rubies or in an urban setting in Las Vegas.

  • Agriculture
  • Children, Youth and Families

We couldn’t do it without the help of our federal and county partners, and the other groups, agencies, businesses and individuals with whom we collaborate.
