Cooperative Extension, the outreach arm of the University of Arizona, is "taking the university to the people." The faculty and staff in the La Paz County Cooperative Extension office are part of a non-formal education network bringing research-based information into communities to help people improve their lives. Today's Cooperative Extension is many things to many people throughout Arizona.
The La Paz County Cooperative Extension's Vision is to enable people to improve their lives and communities through learning partnerships that put knowledge to work. Cooperative Extension brings people together to solve local problems. It is a partnership of local people, La Paz County, the Colorado River Indian Tribes, the University of Arizona and the United States Department of Agriculture.
