About ISU Extension and Outreach: Palo Alto County

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.Palo Alto County brings the University to you.

Extension Council members are elected by the voters of Palo Alto County to serve four year terms. They oversee the planning, preparation, marketing, and delivery of the extension education 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, researched-based, unbiased information and education to help county citizens make better decisions.

The Palo Alto 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 Palo Alto County.
