About ISU Extension and Outreach: Lyon County

The Lyon 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 Lyon County.
Our 2011 Points of Pride tells how we act on that commitment.
Lyon County programs are fulfilling that commitment:

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.
Iowa State University Extension serves Iowans through six program areas: Agriculture and Natural Resources; Business and Industry; Communities; Families; 4-H Youth Development; and Continuing Education. Lyon County brings the University to you!
Other ways Lyon County Extension Helped Iowans to Become Their Best:
4-H programs reaches approximately 214 (4th - 12th grades) Lyon County youth in 2011.
Clover Kids was presented to 82 (2nd & 3rd grades) Lyon County youth in 2011.
Extension Council Members are listed to the right of your screen. Extension Council members are elected by the voters of Lyon County to serve four year terms. They oversee the planning, preparation, marketing, and delivery of the extension educational program in the county. Every county in Iowa has an extension council. Extension councils provide, through a unique partnership with Iowa State University and other federal and state organizations, research-based, unbiased information and education to help county citizens make better decisions.
