Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Week is April 12-17. Iowa’s 100 county extension offices will host activities throughout the week to thank Iowans for their support of extension efforts throughout the state.
“The challenges of the past year changed how ISU Extension and Outreach serves Iowans, but not why: We want a strong Iowa. We are here for you now and always,” said Kevin Pottebaum, Public Relations and Communications Coordinator for ISU Extension and Outreach – Woodbury County.
“This celebration is one way we say thank you to the many volunteers, community leaders, organizations, agencies and other partners who support our work in Woodbury County.” Pottebaum said.
Staff from ISU Extension and Outreach – Woodbury County will be out in the community throughout the week to thank individuals and share how Extension and Outreach can help Iowans. Some activities they will be participating in include showing off some robotics projects that 4-H youth can take part in from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, April 11 at the Southern Hills Mall, reading to children at the Woodbury County Public Library in Moville at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 15, as well as sharing information with shoppers at the Southern Hills Mall on Saturday, April 17 from 2-3 p.m. where individuals can enjoy a free cup of coffee from Nightingale Coffee courtesy of Extension and Outreach – Woodbury County.

“ISU Extension and Outreach engages Iowans in solving today’s problems and planning for tomorrow. We will continue finding new ways to deliver research-based education and information to Iowans,” stated Pottebaum.
ISU Extension and Outreach is part of the federal Cooperative Extension Service — a network of more than 100 land-grant institutions, including Iowa State University, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture serving communities and counties across the United States. Every county in Iowa has an elected extension council that decides how to support ISU Extension and Outreach educational programs at the county level.
