Nebraska Extension, Nemaha County, is taking proactive steps to protect the health and safety of its employees and customers in respect to the potential spread of COVID-19. On Friday, March 20, 2020, the Nemaha County Commissioners made the decision to lock the courthouse doors. OUR OFFICE REMAINS OPEN but services are modified. We are closed to the general public until further notice. Our staff will be working both in the office and remotely. We can be reached by phone and email.
With most of southeast Nebraska receiving much needed rain the past few days and rain predicted for this week, it will be an excellent time to scout crop fields for potential problems. Many areas received torrential rains with the possibility of having flooded crops or even some crops washed out, with erosion in fields.
Check out these two 4-H opportunities: Lend a Hand Workshop & #tag Photo Party!
VIRTUAL LESSONS! Each workshop will be available to you from the comfort of your home, and led by a Nebraska Extension faculty or staff member. You do NOT need to be a 4-H member to join our workshops! All interested youth simply need to fill out the online registration link listed for each workshop. Each link is unique, so be sure to register for each workshop your youth will attend. All workshops are FREE unless otherwise noted. Ages listed are suggested - if you register a youth outside the suggested age range, please plan to assist them as needed.
The Nemaha County 2020 4-H Fair Schedule is now available.
