Extension Council

The Palo Alto County Extension Council is elected by the people of Palo Alto County. The Palo Alto County Extension Council, county staff, and ISU Extension and Outreach staff work together to provide research-based learning opportunities for our people. Through this partnership, we carry Iowa State University’s land-grant mission across Palo Alto County.
