Nebraska Extension in Douglas-Sarpy Counties

Local Interest

Parents and children ages 5-7 are invited to be a part of the Douglas-Sarpy 4-H Clover Kid Program. The primary goal of Clover Kids is to promote the child's stages of development - intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally.

Do you have a specimen to be assessed by our tree, lawn, garden, & insect experts?

4-H empowers youth, ages 5-18, to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults. 4-H is education for life that uses a learn-by-doing approach. In Nebraska, 4-H is present in ALL 93 counties across the state.

Do you enjoy continuing to learn, and sharing that wisdom with others? Consider volunteering as a Nebraska Extension Master Gardener. These volunteers take part in continuing education where they expand their knowledge and share the principles and practices of environmental horticulture. Learn more about the Nebraska Extension Master Gardener at our annual informational meetings. These meetings will explain how ideal applicants can volunteer and communicate horticulture knowledge with the diverse populations in Douglas and Sarpy Counties.

Seasonal and simple is a guide to help you select, store and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables. The recipes use simple preparations and seasonings, so you can taste the goodness of a fruit or vegetable at the peak of its flavor.

As caring adults in young children’s lives we play a major role in setting the stage for lifelong learning, discovery and success. Nebraska Extension is committed to providing science-based strategies to help you support the holistic development of the young child in your care.
