"To create, adapt, and extend research-based knowledge related to agriculture, natural resources and the environment, people and communities to enhance the economic and social well-being of Californians."
The University of California Cooperative Extension is a unique and very successful institution that brings together federal, state, and county governments into a voluntary cooperative partnership to provide the citizens of Amador county access to University of California educational and research programs. As part of the University of California, we seek solutions to local problems by developing ways to apply research-based knowledge in the areas of agriculture and natural resources, youth development (4-H), food and nutrition, family development, and financial management.
For over 75 years we have played a critical role in keeping Amador County's agricultural industry up-to-date and productive. Assistance has been provided to governmental agencies in dealing with difficult environmental issues. Several thousand young people have gained valuable life skills from our 4-H Youth Program and have become productive citizens and leaders in our communities. Thousands of adults have benefited from our educational programs to strengthen families and improve their nutrition and well-being.
Instead of teaching students in University classrooms, Cooperative Extension advisors work directly with people in our community. Our programs are available to all without discrimination.
