Sacramento County Cooperative Extension
New Web Format Coming Soon!
In July 2014, UC Cooperative Extension formed a new “Multi-County Partnership”, consisting of Sacramento, Yolo, and Solano Counties. The partnership has been named “UCCE Capitol Corridor.” The administrative hub is in the Yolo County office in Woodland, but the Sacramento County office is still in its same location.
Beginning in early 2015, UCCE Capitol Corridor will have a single home page from which the public can select programs in Sacramento County as well as those which span all three counties. The format will be similar to the UCCE Central Sierra main page. Our UCCE Sacramento County home page will no longer be accessible. Web pages of all Sacramento programs will remain the same; only the main (home) page will change. The change will bring into focus the existing cross-county academic programs and will promote understanding of volunteer programs, which will continue to be based in their respective counties.
About Cooperative Extension
The University of California’s sixty-four Cooperative Extension offices are local problem-solving centers. We are the bridge between local issues and the power of UC research. Our county-based staff is part of the community – we live and work in the areas we serve. And UCCE is celebrating the centennial of Cooperative Extension in California this year.
As part of the agricultural community, we help farmers develop more-efficient growing methods, solve pest management problems, and develop crops and irrigation methods that use less water.
As advocates for healthy communities, we promote healthy diets and exercise for better health, help Californians learn to choose the most nutritious foods, and help shape the citizens of tomorrow through the 4-H Youth Development Program.
Volunteers extend the reach of our work through the Master Gardener Program, the Master Food Preserver Program, and the California 4-H Youth Development Program.
As stewards of the land, we help develop smart water-use strategies and help preserve natural areas, landscapes, and farmland.
We are stewards, problem-solvers, catalysts, collaborators, and educators.
Brown marmorated stink bugs (BMSB) (Halyomorpha halys) have invaded Midtown, Downtown, and Old Town Sacramento, with new finds in Citrus Heights and Elk Grove.
