Cottonwood District

Welcome to the Cottonwood Extension District #17

 COVID-19 Continuity of Operations

I want to bring you up to date on how we are meeting the needs of our families in Barton and Ellis counties during this time of uncertainty. While our offices doors are locked we want to assure you that we will continue to bring research based information to you. While our face-to-face contact is limited through July 4th, I encourage you to reach out to any of our staff through phone calls or e-mails.

It has been nearly three years since our Extension District formed a partnership between Barton and Ellis Counties. Our staff of seven agents and two office professionals offer programming in the areas of Agriculture, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H and Youth Development and Community Vitality. Let us know how we can help you!
