To better serve you and create a mobile-oriented and user-friendly online experience,
the WVU Extension Service Monongalia County Office is reorganizing our website.
Bookmark your new local source to West Virginia University. On June 1, the WVU Extension Service Monongalia County website officially changes to this address (http://extension.wvu.edu/monongalia.) 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 Monongalia County relevant and timely content that helps you put knowledge to work.

We appreciate the local community support we receive for WVU Extension 4-H programs. Last year, after making a desperate plea for found objects for Energy Express, we received so many wonderful donations that were utilized at our Energy Express sites last summer. Found objects are an important aspect of the program and the goal of utilizing these items is to teach low income youth that they do not need fancy and expensive art supplies to be creative at home. They can simply use things found around their house, which is what we call “found objects”. These items are open-ended creative supplies that most people would likely consider trash or junk, but our site teams at Energy Express are trained to look past what the item is and figure out ways and things that can be made that connect back to the weekly themes and books.
I am asking you to begin saving your found objects for Energy Express. We will begin accepting them at the Extension Office on April 6 and we will take donations up until June 1.
Here are some examples of items that we are looking for, but we take just about anything:
