Extension is committed to helping Nebraskans know more about creating resource- and energy-efficient rural and urban landscapes, protecting and managing water resources, properly managing insect and wildlife pests, and more.
Most Nebraskans aren’t aware of how much Extension is supporting them on a daily basis, in almost every area of their life. Many are aware of the services Extension provides to the agricultural community, but Extension provides expertise and know-how to sectors as diverse as nutrition, health care, and technology.
From border to border, Nebraska Extension is making an incredible impact on the success of our state — its youth, its families, its farms and ranches, its communities, its economy.
