UC Cooperative Extension: 100 Years and Counting!

We're turning 100!!  We invite you to watch our Celebration Video.

May 2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, the legislation that created Cooperative Extension, a nationwide system of community-based education, established as part of each state’s land grant university.

To honor this tie between UC research and citizen science, we're asking all Californian's to become a scientist on May 8th and participate in a one-day science project.  Click on Day of Science and Service to learn more and to participate!

Welcome!

The University of California Cooperative Extension Contra Costa County delivers high quality education and research  programs that contribute to:
• Safe, healthy and accessible food

• Improved nutrition habits and well-nourished residents
• Healthy youth who contribute to healthy communities

Our programs benefit ALL cities and ALL citizens throughout the County.
