Ohio State University Extension

In all 88 counties, Extension is here for you! We are your front door to The Ohio State University. Our practical educational programs blend the needs of local citizens and communities, new research results, and technical information.

We are the nation's largest nonformal educational system. Our programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, and Community Development focus on the economy; environment; family, individual and youth development; and leadership.

Our mission is to engage Ohioans to strengthen their lives and communities through educational programming. Our educational programs are based on scientific knowledge and focus on critical issues and needs.

Extension professionals work with over 250 volunteers here in Henry County to bring programs to Henry County Citizens. These programs are brought to you through educational programs, radio broadcasts, newsletters, videotapes, publications, computer software, and personal responses to your telephone inquiries.
