Cornell Cooperative Extension


The mission of Cooperative Extension is to enable people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work. Extension staff and trained volunteers deliver education programs, conduct applied research, and encourage community collaborations.

Our educators connect people with the information they need on topics such as commercial and consumer agriculture; nutrition and health; youth and families; finances; energy efficiency; economic and community development; and sustainable natural resources.

Our ability to match university resources with community needs helps us play a vital role in the lives of individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout Essex County.
