Updated Services and Office Hours Due to Covid 19

Due to current events our offices will be closed until April 7th and hours of operation will be revisited at that time. The Extension Team recognizes the challenges and impacts facing families, communities and local economies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Educators are available via email and phone to answer questions and provide information. Please click here for a list of our Educators and contact info.


Current County policy has the effect of temporarily suspending most of the office services that we provide, including but not limited to:

  • Soil and Plant Nutrient Testing Lab
  • Plant Disease Diagnostics Lab
  • Tick identification
  • Insect Identification


These services will be suspended until at least April 7, 2020. Until further notice, please do not send or deliver samples to our offices, as we cannot process them.


In addition, all Extension events scheduled through April 7th have been canceled or postponed. All professional staff are working remotely and are unable to travel for work at this time. We are doing our best to maintain and expand our remote educational services and to continue to participate remotely in meetings and events where possible.We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.


The following resource page provides best practices and guidance for individuals at home, food environments (restaurants, grocery stores, farms, markets) and local economies during the Covid-19 crisis. Resources include food service concerns, daycare assistance, food handling, aquaculture, household waste management, and various social service assistance. These pages will be updated as more services become available.
