About ISU Extension and Outreach: Polk County
About Polk County Extension
Iowa State University Extension builds partnerships and provides research-based learning opportunities to improve the quality of life in Iowa. Polk County citizens have benefited from this knowledge since 1916. Throughout the years we've assisted citizens during times of war, natural disasters and economic downturns as well as the good times.
Today Extension programs reach out to every segment of our county. This web site showcases our programs and lets you know how you can participate.
The Polk County Agricultural Extension Council is made of nine publically elected officials for four year terms. The Extension Council meets monthly on the fourth Monday at 4:00 p.m. at the Extension Office. The public is welcome to attend.
Are you planning a meeting and need to find space for 80 people or less? Consider renting the Polk County Extension conference rooms! We have wireless internet, LCD projector, kitchen, ample parking, are located near I-80 and I-35, and are close to several dining establishments and hotels to accommodate your group. Our facility is handicap accessible and is flexible in room set up and division.
