To reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County has temporarily closed the office to public walk-ins. We will however continue to serve the public through phone, emails, online workshops, and on-farm visits as needed. If you need to contact a particular educator, please call our office or send us a message.

Jefferson County 4-H Virtual Academy will start this week for all Jefferson County enrolled 4-Hers! Programs will include Animal Science, Coding, Makerspace, Book Club, Chess Club, Academic Tutoring, Nutrition and Mindfulness, Minecraft/Dimension U, and Dungeons and Dragons.
