The OSU Extension Service has been providing research-based, informal educational programs for Oregonians since 1911. OSU Extension faculty are located on the Corvallis campus and in every Oregon county. Extension programs deliver education and information to help Oregonians solve problems, develop leadership skills, and manage resources wisely. Programs focus on agriculture, family and community development, forestry, 4-H youth development, energy conservation and management, and marine resources. Special statewide initiatives in agriculture include public issues education, water quality and management, and other issues of vital concern to Oregonians. More than 30,000 volunteers team up with Extension faculty to deliver educational programs throughout the state.
