It's a new world. One hundred years ago, who would have guessed that by now we'd be warming our morning coffee in the microwave, checking on our children from the car phone, or using a computer to balance our checkbook? Two hundred television channels? Synthetic fats? Voice mail? E-mail?
Whether we like it or not, the world is changing fast. Now each decision we make has to be based on a solid foundation - a foundation of facts, research, and up-to-the-minute expertise.
Our job here at Colorado State University Extension-Jackson County is to help you build this foundation, whether the subject is Consumer or family issues, agriculture and natural resource management, or youth development.
In this age of sound bites, coupons and advertisements wherever you turn, Extension offers a rare commodity indeed - information you can trust.
Our techniques and data are all research-based, put together by specialists, experts and researchers with no products to sell or agendas to push. Our only concern is the accuracy of the information and the welfare of the citizens of Jackson County
So if you are looking for straightforward, research-based, usable information on agriculture and natural resources; 4-H youth development; Consumer and family issues; or community development, then your first stop should be Extension.
