No more flipping through phone books.
Get answers to your questions about agriculture, the environment, youth, families and consumer topics by calling 1-800-ASK-UGA1 to connect you to your University of Georgia Cooperative Extension office.
When you dial this number, you will be connected to the County Extension Office of the county where the call originated.
We're still listed in the local phone directory under county government but the 800 number should help people to make a quick call when a phone book might not be available.
Or check us out on-line at ugaextension.com. Many of our publications are now available through this homepage.
However, don't hesitate to call your local Extension office for information you can't find through the website.
Unfortunately, not all information has been formatted so it could be placed on the web. And, many people just want that human touch they get from their local county agent.
At first, I didn't think I would like publications online. However, I can now see a lot of benefits. Best of all, publications online are available 24 hours a day.
You don't have to come to the Extension office during normal business hours to get the information.
Believe it or not, online publications are also helping those who prefer to come to our office for the information. It's much easier for us to find something on the computer for them than to look through the "old fashioned files."
We still maintain file copies of many documents which are not available online.
I just look forward to the day when it's all available on the web.
