The Logan County Cooperative Extension Service has a new website (logan.ca.uky.edu), which promises to be easier to use and will feature the many activities and events coming into our community at the cooperative.

Leann Martin, Logan County Extension Agent for Ag and Natural Resources, says the new website has been a collective effort at the office, however, staff assistant Megan Tredway, has had a big influence in creating the user-friendly site and putting it together.

“We had a website before, but it wasn’t utilized as much as we would have liked. We wanted more current events posted along with pertinent information to assist the user,” Martin said.

The new website was officially launched July 1st, and so far, said Martin, there has been excellent feedback.

“We hope with this website it will be more user friendly for those who visit. The last one was a little hard to navigate, whereas this new one will allow for easier movement, a more colorful presentation, and a lot of information,” Martin added.

The Logan County Cooperative Extension Service is part of the University of Kentucky and Kentucky State University off-campus information network. The new website will connect you to UK, KSU and the world. The extension service delivers information, education, and solutions to the community they serve. They grow ideas to better communities, strengthen local economies, and promote healthier lives.

The Logan County Cooperative Extension Service provides several programs and events including: 4-H Youth Development, Ag and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, SNAP Ed, the Farmer’s Market and the Logan County Fair, to name a few. The extension complex is used for numerous activities and events throughout the year. You will now be able to keep up with what is offered through the new website.

The Logan County Cooperative Extension Service is located at 255 John Paul Rd., Russellville, KY 42276. For more information you can call 270-726-6323 or visit the website at logan.ca.uky.edu/.
