Calvert County

Welcome to the University of Maryland Extension (UME) Calvert’s website. Navigating the website has changed for all of Extension, we think you will find the new site very well laid out and easy to use. The banner along the top of the home page (About, Resources, Programs, etc.) provides information relating to Extension state-wide. To search for programs specific to UME Calvert, click on the Program Area in the banner “Explore Our Location” under the photo of our office building. There you will find information regarding the program and upcoming events. At the bottom of the home page under “What’s Going On” are events being offered by other UME offices, but are available for all to participate in. We thank you for visiting our site, and hope you find many opportunities offered by Extension to be a life-long learner!

For the health and safety of our communities, the University of Maryland Extension will continue to be re-evaluated as we receive new information and directives from government and health officials, as well as UMD campus administration.
