Discover Extension


The Coles-Cumberland-Douglas-Moultrie-Shelby Extension Unit is the University of Illinois' educational outreach to local residents. We offer programming in the following areas: local food systems and small farms, 4-H youth development, family life, and nutrition and wellness. We also offer the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-Ed) and Master Gardener program. Extension's research-based programming helps local citizens improve their lives and our communities through learning partnerships. We are "Investing in You!"

Today's Features

University of Illinois Extension Unit 19 is conducting an Educational Interests Survey in the areas of Horticulture, Agriculture and Natural Resources. We need your help to identify outreach needs within the five counties in our Unit. The survey can be completed on-line and should only take a few minutes to complete. Thank you for assisting with this important assessment.
