Cooperative Extension plays a unique role in both rural and urban Pima County. We provide practical information and education to help people make their lives better. Extension educational programs promote environmental stewardship, family health and well-being, youth development and agriculture.

Outreach efforts translate relevant University of Arizona research into effective practices people can put to immediate use in their homes and businesses.

We respond to thousands of residents who come to us for information, and we reach out to meet our county's educational needs. Programs are conducted by The University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) Cooperative Extension faculty based at 4210 N. Campbell, Tucson AZ 85719 on the Campus Agricultural Center. Faculty members form partnerships with community groups and trained volunteers to bring the university to the people. A satellite office is located in Green Valley.
