Welcome to WSU Kittitas County Extension
Helping You Put Knowledge to Work!
In a year’s time, Kittitas County Extension programs contact over 30,000 people through short courses, workshops, seminars, tours, committee meetings, volunteer programs, field days and multimedia communications.
Educational programs/resources are offered in the areas of:
- Agriculture and Natural Resources
- 4-H/Youth Development

Extension programs utilize volunteer outreach in the areas of 4-H and Master Gardeners. These volunteers receive training and educational materials in exchange for service they provide for the Extension Program.
A total of 142 volunteers spend an estimated 23,563 hours per year at a value of $425,076* to further Extension programs in Kittitas County (*based on Independent Sector Value of Adult Volunteers at $18.04 per hour).
WSU Extension is a partnership of USDA, WSU, and Kittitas County. Our mission is to engage people, organizations and communities to advance knowledge, economic well-being and quality of life by fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research.
In 2014, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, which established the Cooperative Extension Service. The result of a unique educational partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the nation’s land-grant universities, Extension engages people, organizations and communities through programs to advance knowledge, economic well-being and quality of life by fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research.
Join us as we celebrate Extension’s past contributions and look forward to the next 100 years of service. To learn more, visit.
