The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension was formally started in 1914, and back in those days, they were involved with the effort to build good roads around the state. In the past century, their mission has expanded exponentially, and this site contains items about their work in the Silver State as well as a number that are of general interest. The materials on the site are divided into six primary sections, including "News & Events" and "Publications". In the "Publications" area, visitors will find fact sheets and reports on agriculture, community development, horticulture, natural resources, and family life. Visitors interested in the policy implications of their work will want to click on over to the "Programs/Impacts" area. Here they can look over information about their thematic programs and about their various initiatives throughout the state.
