An open house celebrating the new Utah State University Extension Davis County office and expanded Kaysville Education Center is held on Thursday, Sept. 28, from 2 to 4 p.m. The public is invited to tour the new facility, and Aggie Ice Cream will be served.
The new building, located on the USU Botanical Center property at 80 East Sego Lily Drive in Kaysville, will replace the Farmington Extension office and also houses expanded classrooms for the USU Kaysville Education Center.
According to Tom Lee, dean and executive director for the USU Brigham City Region, which includes USU Kaysville, the new facility will allow for more courses and programs to be offered to students wanting to further their education and enhance their career opportunities.
“This not only benefits these individuals and their families, it fosters economic growth in northern Utah,” he said.
Justen Smith, USU Extension northern region director, said the new USU Extension building will allow Extension faculty to offer numerous new classes and educational opportunities to citizens of Davis County and Utah in the areas of horticulture, water conservation, gardening, healthy living and 4-H youth development.
“One of the great benefits is that this new building is housed on the USU Botanical Center property,” he said. “Extension faculty will literally be able to take clientele right out the Extension office doors and show them vegetable and fruit varieties, ornamental trees, water conserving native plants and many other things located on the USU Botanical Center property.”
