Welcome to University of Illinois Extension. Your local Extension office brings you reliable, research-based information in agriculture and natural resources, consumer and family economics, community and economic development and 4-H youth development. Our goal is simple . . . to help you put knowledge to work!

The UNIT is wanting your input to help us with Program Planning for 2016/2017.  Please select the hyperlink below to participate in the online survey and tell us your opinion -- it won't take but 10 minutes of your time!  The survey will remain active until June 15, 2016.  Survey results will be shared in a report to our Unit 27 Council in July; the report will then be available when the meeting minutes are published and posted on the unit's website.


We would encourage you to add us to your favorites or bookmarks.

University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.

If you need a reasonable accomodation to participate in any of our programs, please contact 618-658-5321.
