Extension Council

The Jasper 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 Jasper County.

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.

Jasper Co. Extension is here to serve you! Iowa State University Extension and Jasper County have worked together to bring knowledge to the citizens of Jasper County since the early 1930's.
