For almost a century, Cornell Cooperative Extension has worked in partnership with Chautauqua County government and Cornell University to address priority needs in agriculture, environment and energy, youth development, family services, and watershed stewardship. Our signature programs continue to provide residents with valuable and unique access to scientific research and practical education—enabling individuals to improve their lives and communities.
We continue to change our direction as the needs in the community change as well. Although change is never easy, it does bring new opportunities to learn, grow and expand our programs and outreach efforts.
Cornell Cooperative Extension's access to university-based research is critically important to the vitality of our local economy. Residents, businesses and others rely on us for training and research-based programs that helps them improve their quality of life and their communities.
"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled." Today, we continue an enduring commitment for inclusiveness and collaboration to ignite knowledge and sustain life-long learning. Of course, we could not do all of this work without the help of our volunteers who donate over 10,000 hours annually to support our signature program areas.
We invite you to take a tour of our website to learn more about our Association, signature program areas and how you can become a member and/or volunteer.
