Nebraska Extension - Serving Dodge County

Our office brings you reliable, resarch-based information in agriculture and natural resources, lawn and garden management, consumer and family economics, community and economic development and 4-H/youth development. Our goal is simple . . . to help you put knowledge to work!

Please check our site often for updates. We offer a wide variety of classes, workshops and trainings throughout the year.

A nine member Extension Board oversees the local Extension program development and delivery. It gives us great pleasure to serve you in your lifelong learning quest. Our office is located on West 23rd street, across the street from the Fremont airport and adjacent to Educational Service Unit. Please stop in for a visit and to see what the University of Nebraska-Lincoln can offer you.
