About UC Cooperative Extension

For 100 years and counting, UCCE researchers and educators have worked together with local community members to develop and provide science-based information to solve economic, agricultural, natural resource, youth development and nutrition issues. Some of our programs include 4-H Youth Development, Master Gardeners, Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, and the Integrated Pest Management Program.
