Iowa State University Extension & Outreach: Story County

There’s a reason we do what we do in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach: We want a strong Iowa. That’s why we partner with Iowans and harness the resources of our university for communities and farmers to thrive, for families and children to be healthy, and eventually to turn the world over to the next generation better than we found it. Because a strong Iowa is what we all want.
