10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Celebrate with us the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914 which officially created the national Cooperative Extension Service. This legislation led to the formation of what we know today as University of Maryland Extension. The celebration will highlight Extension's past and future programming and how those programs have served Charles County residents for 100 years.
Our Vision is to empower people, through education, to make sound decisions throughout their lives.
Our Mission is to educate citizens so that they may apply practical, research-based information to address critical issues in agriculture, food, natural resources, youth and family.
Who we are... Extension is a national partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture, state land-grant universities, and county government. In Maryland, Extension comprises the off-campus educational arm of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources of the University of Maryland, College Park. As faculty members of the university, county Extension agents and educators teach citizens research-based information concerning agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences and 4-H youth development in their communities.
