Welcome to the Juneau District Office of the Cooperative Extension!
Southeast Alaska is defined by the waters, islands, resources and people of the Inside Passage. Fjords, waterfalls, lakes, mountains, and glaciers shape landscapes that are rich with fish, minerals, forests, scenic beauty, and wildlife. For thousands of years, adventurous, capable people have made a successful living in this bountiful region, but there are always unique challenges requiring creative solutions.
To help people meet challenges and create lasting solutions, the Juneau staff and agents offer programs throughout Southeast Alaska. We are constantly working to “take the University to the people” and engage with the people of Southeast to identify and meet the needs of our many and diverse communities.
