A Partnership

Larimer County Extension is a partnership between Colorado State University and Larimer County.  This partnership makes it possible to bring research-backed information from Colorado State University to everyone in Larimer County.  Working together, we can provide even greater resources for you.

The History

Over its history, faculty and staff with expertise in agriculture, horticulture, range, forestry, water, health promotion, financial education, business management, leadership development, and 4-H youth development instructed the people of Colorado’s 64 counties utilizing the latest information and research.

Connected in the Community

Larimer County Extension works with hundreds of organizations, businesses, and volunteers to reach out to as many people as possible. Bringing expertise, passion and a deep commitment to the communities served.
