*SPECIAL ALERT* Sudden oak death pathogen reported in Kansas: Unfortunately we start our news with a report that the Kansas Department
of Agriculture has confirmed detection of the sudden oak death pathogen here in Kansas in container rhododendrons. Links to the announcement 
that came today and other resources are available on our blog here: http://blogs.k-state.edu/turf/special-alert-sudden-oak-death-pathogen-reported-in-kansas/ 
KSU, KDA, Kansas Forest Service, and others are working closely together on this situation.

 As many Kansans are facing losses and damage to their homes, businesses and farms due to flooding, we have put together a web page with links to KSRE resources, others from extension partners outside the state, and recent KSRE print and audio news pieces addressing the subject from several angles.

 Please make your affected community members aware of this page and, if you know of other resources that we ought to include, please let me know and we’ll add them. As our team continues to cover this, we will update the page.  You can find the resources linked from the top of the KSRE News page or go directly to this link:

Our Mission:

"To provide leadership in education through evidence based, culturally appropriate programs and information that improves the quality of life for all citizens."

K-State Research and Extension celebrates 100 years of service to local residents in Wyandotte. The Wyandotte County office was established October 25, 2017, just a few years after the U.S. government passed the Smith-Lever Act of 1914 establishing the Cooperative Extension Service across the country. 

Our office provides a balanced mix of programs in Horticulture, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development and Community Vitality. Wyandotte County Extension stresses the importance of enriching the lives of our citizens by providing free or low-cost opportunities to engage in lifelong learning. Our staff members are trained to provide educational programs and resources to all members of the community.
