Putting Knowledge to Work!
West Virginia University Extension works to provide “solutions in your community” through key programs and resources including agriculture, environment and natural resources, 4-H youth development, food and nutrition, health and wellness, financial planning and home gardening. These research-based programs and services are available to all residents of Mason County thanks to the tremendous support of our community members, local organizations, volunteers and local partners – the Board of Education and County Commission.
Mason County Highlights

Despite the pandemic, CEOS members reported 4,625 community service hours, which can be translated to more than $106,000 in value to the community.
