Connecting People, Resources and Knowledge
WSU Extension programs connect the people and communities of Island County with the knowledge base of Washington State University to promote quality of life and advance economic well-being through fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research.
New WSU Phone Numbers
As of March 1 2018, Washington State University Extension, Island County will serve as an independent contractor with Island County instead of a department of county government. The change will allow WSU Extension to increase programming by 20 percent, without increasing the cost to the county. This change is also an opportunity for WSU Extension, Island County to expand the classes offered on Whidbey, which can be teleconferenced in from any WSU campus. These can include programs such as Cultivating Success, which educates farmers about developing sustainable small farms. We are also working with the nursing school in Spokane to bring continuing education courses via video to the island/
The transition will not hamper services or programs currently being offered. Office locations will all remain the same. You will still be able to reach staff using established emails. But, contacting staff via phone will involve dialing new phone numbers. Please make note of these new numbers.
