About ISU Extension and Outreach: Lee County
The Lee County Extension Council, county staff and ISU Extension and Outreach staff work together to provide research-based learning opportunities for our citizens. Through this partnership, we carry Iowa State University’s land-grant mission across Lee County.
We are committed to bringing you unbiased, research based information that will improve your quality of life.
Some examples of our service to the community are included in our annual Stakeholder's Reports. To read the 2012 report on your computer simply click on the link:
Our 2011 Points of Pride also tells how we act on that commitment.
Lee County programs are fulfilling that commitment:
- Becoming a scientist or engineer is not easy, but Iowa teens are getting hands-on experience.
- In only seven weeks, a child can learn how to stay away from alcohol and drugs.
- Starting conversations that lead to farm business transitionsfrom one generation to the next is hard – we help get them started.
- Schools and restaurants are trained to safely prepare nutritious foods.
- Families are learning how to prepare healthy, economical meals.
- Foods grown and marketed locally boost the local economy and fulfill consumer demands
- Our communities are more sustainable.
- Businesses get individualized support they need to grow.
- Farmers depend on us for the latest crop production research.
We can anticipate trends, build relationships, and catalyze opportunities because we are part of the ongoing life of our communities, committed to healthy people, healthy environments, and healthy economies.
We are governed by a nine-member council that is elected by the general public. If our council or staff can be of service to you, please contact us.
