Connecting Communities, Resources, and Knowledge

WSU Clark County Extension programs engage people, organizations and communities to advance knowledge, economic well-being, and quality of life by fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research. Extension has connected the people and communities of Clark County with the knowledge base of Washington State University since 1917.

Land Grant Universities – Connecting You to Reliable, Practical Knowledge

The two land-grant universities in Washington include: Washington State University (WSU) and the  Northwest Indian College in Bellingham.

Established by Congress in the 1800s, the land-grant system, through Extension Services, provides better access to the knowledge base of WSU and other land-grant universities nation-wide.  The Smith-Lever Act of 1914 established the nationwide Cooperative Extension Service as part of the land-grant system.  WSU Extension is a three-way partnership between USDA, Washington State University, and local county governments.   Extension started in Clark county on November 1, 1917.
