Extension at Work in Your Community
Contact the WVU Extension Mercer County office to learn about upcoming programs in our community.
People in Your Community…Knowledge at Your Doorstep
Our Mercer County office provides agricultural information and assistance, but also other local programs like 4-H, CEOS, and Families and Health (among others) for county communities. We are also your link to the WVU Extension Service, other WVU Extension county offices, and to West Virginia University colleges and offices. WVU’s Mercer 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.
Each WVU Extension Office can provide the public with information on many topics from many resources. WVU’s Mercer County Extension faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in a number of areas. Browse our website to find needed forms and information for local programs, or contact us if we can offer assistance.
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.
