Since the first UC Cooperative Extension office opened in Humboldt County in 1913, UC scientists have been reaching out to communities across California, serving as problem-solvers, catalysts, collaborators, stewards and educators.
Advisors live and work in
the communities they serve. To many Californians, they are the face of UC—providing
expertise, visibility and a keen understanding of local issues.
