Wyandotte County

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 more than 100 years of service to local residents in Wyandotte. The Wyandotte County office was established October 25, 1917, 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 residents 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.
