Cooperative Extension puts a wealth of useful, research-based information at your finger tips!

CCE of Clinton County connects people to each other and to research-based information to help us solve problems together. We adapt our programs to provide equal program opportunity and to be where community members are. We offer an educational experience that is customized for an individual’s needs, abilities, and interests.
