University of Maryland Extension
September 11, 2020
We hope that you are faring well during these interesting times of COVID19. We wanted to give a quick update to let you know that while our office location is currently not open to the public, we are still working to support you in any way we can. We have a strong virtual capability and can still work to assist with your agricultural inquiries, horticulture and insect issues, 4-H programs and Nutrient Management plans and questions virtually. Please reach out to our staff and faculty as needed and they can determine how best we can currently serve your needs. We are hopeful that our office will be able to reopen to the public soon, but even though we likely will have minimal staffing on any given day to try to follow the Governor’s request to work remotely wherever possible, while yet serving the communities where we work and live. Thank you for your understanding!

Best Wishes,

For over 100 years, the University of Maryland Extension has served the state with research-based education and scientific solutions for our most essential needs. We reaffirm our commitment to that long-standing tradition with the release of our five-year strategic programming plan, outlining the breadth and depth of initiatives essential to Maryland.
Our educators have invested their expertise into the state of Maryland and its people in the areas of agriculture, youth development, healthy living, and environmental responsibility. Expert faculty and support staff engaged over 400,000 residents last year, delivering programs in person and online, serving all 23 counties and Baltimore City.
But we don’t do it all alone.
UME partners with over 5,000 groups, agencies, institutions, and organizations.  These partnerships tackle problems ranging from mental health and the rural opioid crisis, to helping farmers feed more people and stay profitable in uncertain times. We also engage almost 6,000 volunteers, working together to see Maryland’s youth and communities thrive in a sustainable environment.
We invite you to review our five-year programmatic plan and learn more about how we serve Maryland’s communities. We continue to develop research-based scientific solutions and provide the expertise, resources, and knowledge for a better, healthier, more profitable Maryland.
