Part of the National Cooperative Extension System

All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.

Putting Knowledge to Work!

The West Virginia University Extension Service works to provide solutions in your community through key programs and resources, including agriculture and natural resources; 4-H and youth development; food and nutrition; health and wellness; financial planning; and home gardening. These research-based programs and services are available to Tyler County residents thanks to the tremendous support of our community members, local organizations, volunteers and local partners, including the Board of Education and County Commission. 

Tyler County Highlights

  • Improvements to our 4-H camp facilities are ongoing and will enhance the overall camper experience while also improving safety of the facilities. We are grateful for the continued support of the Tyler County Commission and other partners on this project.
  • We continue to expand youth programming in specialty interest areas, including safety, nutrition and STEM.
  • Developed partnerships and opportunities to provide pop-up markets and other nutrition outreach for families throughout the county, including elementary schools, farmers markets and other locations.
