Placer-Nevada Counties

Placer and Nevada Counties’ UC Cooperative Extension staff provides research-based educational services to meet the needs of local residents. Our programs in 4-H and youth development, Master Gardeners, Specialty Crops Eat Local Program, nutrition, horticulture and livestock provide education with an emphasis on hands-on learning to “help people help themselves.” 

Cooperative Extension was established in Placer and Nevada Counties in 1917. In the agreement, the county provides support staff and services in exchange for the university-paid programs and professionals. Cooperative Extension's mission is to help all segments of the community benefit from the scientific advances in our nation's land grant universities, particularly in the areas of agriculture, family and consumer sciences, and youth development. This mission is carried out by university professionals and highly educated and trained community volunteers.
