Bookmark the New WVU Extension Service Wayne County Office Website

To better serve you and create a mobile-oriented and user-friendly online experience, the WVU Extension Service Wayne County Office is reorganizing our website.

Bookmark your new local source to West Virginia University. On June 1, the WVU Extension Service Wayne County website officially changes to this address (http://extension.wvu.edu/wayne.) You'll still be able to reach us from our old address, for awhile, but as with anything in life - and the web - things will continue to change. Thanks for your patience during this time.

If you would like more information about these changes, please email us so we can share your questions, thoughts and ideas with our team to bring Wayne County relevant and timely content that helps you put knowledge to work.

4-H Youth Development

Did you know that in 4-H you can build a rabbit den, go on a hike, learn photography, be a news reporter, raise small pets and livestock, safely shoot an air rifle, shot gun, or bow and arrow, learn about other cultures and customs, go to camp and make new friends? Did you know that 4-H is for everyone between the ages of 5 and 21? That’s right, everyone! In 4-H you can learn leadership skills and contribute to your community! Here are just a few exciting activities that Wayne County 4-H members are involved with:

  • 4-H Heritage Quilt Trail
  • Shooting Sports – air rifle, shot gun, and archery
  • Livestock and horses

The Wayne County 4-H program has lots of opportunities for youth of all ages. Call our office to receive more information.

Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS)

In many ways, CEOS is 4-H for adults! The purpose of CEOS is to provide leadership development, continuing education, and service. CEOS members have lots of fun while learning and giving back back to their community through various service projects. Wayne County CEOS Clubs are always looking for new members - call our office to learn more. 

Gardening & Horticulture

Do you have questions about your garden or the vegetables growing in it? Or do you need your soil tested? Or do you have questions about your lawn? If you answered yes to any of these questions, feel free to call our office anytime 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
