About Us

Welcome to Utah State University Extension in Salt Lake County. Salt Lake County Extension provides informal education to you through workshops, mass media, demonstrations, 4-H clubs, Master Gardener Volunteers, telephone consultations, individual and group meetings, and educational bulletins.
Though more than 100 years old, Extension is as vital as ever, and perhaps even more so, due to the increased diversity and complexity of the issues people encounter today. The Extension system continues its longstanding tradition of extending the university to the people to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities.
Extension is unique in structure and function. As a partnership of federal, state, and local governments, the Extension system--with its network of county offices ad state universities, is in a position to deliver educational programs at the grassroots level throughout the nation, With its university faculty and staff serving the states and territories most located in the over 3,000 counties across the country, the county Extension office is truly the front door to America's land-grant universities. This integration of teaching, research, & public service enables the Extension system to respond to critical and emerging issues with research-based, unbiased information. 

Our office is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
