UNH Cooperative Extension brings information and education into the communities of the Granite State to help make New Hampshire’s individuals, businesses, and communities more successful and its natural resources healthy and productive. For 100 years, our specialists have been tailoring contemporary, practical education to regional needs, helping create a well-informed citizenry while strengthening key economic sectors.
Our focus areas
Who we are
Seventy state and field specialists with expertise in our four focus areas are our boots on the ground. You’ve likely seen them around. They are on woodlots and farms, in schools and town halls, on lakes and coastal waters, in senior centers and on the web—delivering education and information to make New Hampshire strong.
Behind them, in every New Hampshire county, 14-member advisory councils help identify the educational needs of the county residents and implement Extension programs. These all-volunteer councils meet no fewer than six times per year. Each county council includes a member of the county delegation and a representative from the county commissioners.
