Making a Difference
Across California, the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources' (UC ANR) 64 Cooperative Extension offices are local problem-solving centers. We are the bridge between local issues and the power of UC research. Our county-based staff is part of the community – we live and work in the areas we serve. We turn science into solutions.
We foster healthy food systems, healthy environments, healthy communities and healthy Californians.
