A message from Holly Gatzke, your Extension Educator
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension serves the residents of Nye County through the educational process that applies knowledge to
critical issues, needs and opportunities. Extension Educators, program coordinators, program instructors and support staff have all played a
role in delivering information to help our ranchers, farmers, school children, teachers, caregivers, consumers, homeowners, business owners,
visitors, workers, parents, government officials, home gardeners and entrepreneurs. As you browse this site, you will see examples of many of
the programs and participants from our communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our stakeholders and partners.
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension's office in Tonopah links citizens of Northern Nye and Esmeralda counties with educational opportunities from the University of Nevada and United States Department of Agriculture. Working with communities in Tonopah, Round Mountain, Smoky Valley, Yomba and Duckwater Shoshone Indian Reservations, Gabbs, Goldfield, Silver Peak and Fish Lake Valley, our programs focus on community development, and children, youth, and families.
