WVU Serving all 55 of West Virginia’s Counties

The WVU Extension Service provides community programs throughout the state with support from West Virginia University faculty and staff. WVU also maintains a historic special-mission campus at WVU Jackson’s Mill Center for Lifelong Learning and State 4-H Camp, near Weston, West Virginia.

The Preston County 4-H program is Celebrating the start of a new club year during National 4-H Week.

Across West Virginia, young people involved in 4-H are making a lasting impact. Our 4-H’ers are building robots, helping the environment, exploring math and science, traveling to new places, getting healthy and becoming leaders in their communities and beyond.

People in Your Community…Knowledge at Your Doorstep

Our Preston County Extension office provides aid to farmers, gardeners, and homeowners, but also local educational programs for area families and youth, businesses, and communities. On our website you will find Extension Service related information on all of these subjects. When in doubt, you can always call our office or email us.

Preston County and State Map WVU’s Preston County Extension office is part of the national land-grant system. Each office has the same mission as its foundation: to help people put knowledge to work. On our website, we also link you to eXtension, a national clearinghouse on Extension Service information, gathered by Extension Agents across the United States.

Each WVU Extension Office provides the public with information on many topics from various research-based resources. WVU’s Preston County Extension faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in the following areas: Agriculture & Natural Resources, 4-H & Youth Development, Families & Health, and Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS). To meet and support the needs of local people and communities, county faculty and staff involve local residents in developing and leading specific programs and activities.

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.
