Providing counties with help and science-based information is the core of University of Georgia Cooperative Extension’s mission.

And now they’ve made it easier for Georgians to access instant information when office hours are over.

Extension is helping Georgians virtually through its newly redesigned website www.extension.uga.edu. The site provides the state’s citizens with multiple ways to get their questions answered — through websites, publications and easily accessible contact information for county agents.

UGA Extension is currently transitioning to the new tier-structure plan, and the new website is one essential way it’s helping provide continued support across the state.

“Our aim with this new plan was to do all we can to ensure Georgians have access to the education and information they need from us,” said Beverly Sparks, associate dean for Extension with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
