Mission Statement

Pinellas County/University of Florida Extension is part of a nationwide network of community educational centers providing non-biased, research-based information to America's citizens. It is based on the Federal Land-Grant concept established in the early 1900's to "extend" university resources out to the people where they live. Locally, Extension is a cooperative partnership between your Pinellas County Government and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Our educational programs are directed at broad national and state concerns, as well as issues specific to Pinellas County with locally determined - and citizen influenced - priorities. Extension is here to serve as a bridge between the research labs in Gainesville and our community by interpreting, demonstrating, and implementing knowledge. Our program areas share significant common goals in helping citizens to conserve resources, protect the natural and home environments, and generally improve their lives and community. This website is designed to help you access those local Extension program areas that can provide information you can apply to your life here in Pinellas County. On the main webpage, you will find Internet links to Pinellas County Government's website for quick access to other county departments, to the University of Florida Extension's website where you can access university resources and other Extension centers throughout Florida, and a link to the Federal Extension website to further access information as well as link to Extension centers throughout the United States.
