 UCCE Operations During Coronavirus 

UC Cooperative Extension offices across the state have transitioned to working remotely as a step to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. At this time we are not conducting any in-person gatherings or events. We are continuing to work on projects and are happy to provide assistance by phone, email, or by appointment in the office. We will see walk-ins but only go in the office as needed. We hope you stay healthy and encourage you to be vigilant in keeping our community safe.
