A message from Staci Emm, your Extension Educator
As the Extension Educator for Mineral County, I would like to welcome you to Mineral County, Nevada.
Mineral County, created in 1911, is located in West-Central Nevada, encompassing some 3,756 square miles, and is one of 17 counties in Nevada.
While Hawthorne is the county seat, other small outlying communities include Walker Lake, Luning, Mina and Schurz (Walker River Indian Reservation).
Our local Extension office provides need-based and noncredit education throughout the county.
We work directly with county commissioners and department heads, the Walker River Paiute Tribe, the Mineral County School District and the townships to build our
local Extension programs.
