Local Interest

Nebraska Extension has numerous field days that agronomists, conservationists, and farmers can attend during the summer across the state. Locally, we have two upcoming regional field days at the end of June and early July. Please learn more about each of the field days and consider attending.

The “Good Life in Early Life” podcast, a product of Nebraska Extension’s Early Childhood program, disseminates the latest insights in Early Care and Education (ECE) tailored for a Nebraska audience. The podcast’s mission is to provide a unique platform, delivering scientific information in an accessible manner while uplifting Nebraskans through relatable success stories in early childhood within the state.

Join us for the next programs in the GRO Big Red Virtual Learning series. 

These free webinar series - delivered via Zoom - are a great opportunity to join experts from Nebraska Extension to learn and ask questions! All  programs are on the second Wednesday of the month from Noon-1pm CT. Note the date/time change from 2023.

Previous zoom learning sessions can also be found here.
