University of Illinois Extension

Illinois Extension provides practical translations of cutting-edge research to help people, businesses, and communities find answers to some of the most pressing issues of our modern world. Our work is guided by a desire to create meaningful progress toward addressing a select group of issues, which we call grand challenges.

Staff are using Zoom conferencing to community with all youth and adult clients in program areas.  Webinars are being offered in all program areas to both you and adults.  Nutritional webinars are also being offered to all SNAP-Ed partners and teachers to present to youth online programs.  Residents should visit for dates of program webinars in nutrition, horticulture, and 4H youth development.

Please direct questions for SNAP-Ed low income audiences to Dale Kehr at, horticultural questions to Kim Isaacson at, 4-H Youth Development questions to Sabrina Agee at and administrative questions to Director James Reaves at
