West Virginia University Extension Service—Here to Serve You!

The Taylor County Extension program is informal education designed to “help people help themselves” in acquiring knowledge and improving their quality of life. If you cannot find information you are wanting though our site, you can always call or email our office.

The Cooperative Extension Service provides programs in the areas of 4-H and Youth, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Community Resources and Economic Development, Family Nutrition, and Family and Consumer Sciences. To meet and support the needs of local people and Taylor County map communities, county faculty and staff involve local residents in developing and leading specific programs and activities.

To effectively reach diverse audiences, Extension educators offer a variety of educational programs through many methods and media including workshops, meetings, exhibits and fairs, newsletters, telephone calls, letters and individual consultations.

Part of the National Cooperative Extension System

All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.
