March 20, 2020
UC Cooperative Extension is currently closed to the public, but we are still working and here to help!
Our Community Education Specialists and Advisors are working remotely and are available via email, mobile phone, zoom and other virtual communications technologies. County staff are in the office during regular business hours and are available via phone and email.
Please call the office if you need access to educational materials or curriculum and staff will bring the items to you.
Being mindful of official guidance concerning social distancing, all UC ANR functions, events, activities, meetings, etc. will also either be postponed, cancelled or moved to Zoom video conferencing. This directive also includes all volunteer-led youth or adult programming, meetings, or gatherings.
During this telecommute status, I want to emphasize that we are still working and available to assist our partners and stakeholders across the state. Critical research projects are being maintained and program delivery is taking place online. There is no impact to your ability to connect with us by email, phone or Zoom video conferencing. Please visit our website (http://ceglenn.ucanr.edu/about/contact/) for contact information and use email or mobile phone as your primary method of communication. We will work to find solutions to support our stakeholders throughout any possible scenario that the virus may bring. Specific information about our programs will be communicated via email. Subscribe to updates by program area at http://ceglenn.ucanr.edu/news_408/.

UCCE is a full partnership of federal, state, county, and private resources linked in applied research and educational outreach. UCCE's many teaching tools include meetings, conferences, workshops, demonstrations, field days, video programs, newsletters and manuals. Thousands of volunteers extend UCCE's outreach, assisting with the California 4-H Youth Development Program and Master Gardener Program.
