How We Can Help

USU Extension offers expertise and pertinent information specific to the needs of our county

4-H staff and volunteers develop fun summer learning clubs and activities for youth which are held at our office as well as a Clover Buds club for younger youth. 

4- H Is the nation’s largest youth organization with more than 6 million 4-H youth in urban neighborhoods, suburban schoolyards and rural farming communities. 4-H:
  • Teaches youth leadership, citizenship, and life skills using a “learn by doing” approach and is an educational program that provides wholesome, fun activities with programs designed to engage youth in hands-on learning activities.
  • Programming is provided through the caring support of adult volunteers and mentors, who inspire youth to work collaboratively, take the lead on their own projects and set and achieve goals with confidence.

Plant Diagnostics Lab

Diagnostics Lab The USU Extension Office diagnoses plant problems and identifies insects, arachnids and weeds. Bring healthy and diseased plant tissue samples, or insects in a jar. Common problems can be diagnosed on the spot. Uncommon problems need to be sent to the USU plant pathology lab in Logan at the cost of $10.

Soil Testing

It is a good idea to have your soil tested every couple of years to see which nutrients your soil needs. Information on how to get your soil analyzed can be obtained at the Extension Office or at (click on Forms and then Soil Test).
