Cottonwood District

Welcome to the Cottonwood Extension District #17

The Cottonwood Extension District is made up of Barton and Ellis Counties and formed July 1, 2017. K-State Research and Extension programs present useful information related, but not limited to: Agriculture; Family and Consumer Sciences; Economics; 4-H Youth Development; Home and Family life; Business and Economics; and Health and Nutrition. We take programs to Schools, Gardens, Community Centers, and many other places.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.
