About Washington County
We are a "branch office" of Ohio State University
Did you know that the Washington County Extension office is a "branch office" of Ohio State University? The Ohio State University Extension is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, The Ohio State University and Washington County Commissioners. Our Washington County Office is your front door to the Ohio State University.
We are the world's largest nonformal educational system. Our practical educational programs combine the needs of local citizens and communities with new research and technical information. The four areas of focus are 4-H Youth Development, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Community Development, and Family & Consumer Science. These programs are continually being evaluated and updated to meet the changing needs and issues facing our community.
