Welcome to the Juneau District Office of the UAF Cooperative Extension Service!

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.

We have experts in agriculture and horticulture, food security and emergency preparedness, food preservation and safety and more!

Pressure Gauge Testing at the Juneau Office

Dial gauges on pressure canners need to be tested for accuracy every year. This free service is offered at the Juneau Extension office. You don't have to bring your whole canner in, but the gauge can still be attached to your lid. Please call ahead to ensure someone is in to test your gauge, 523-3280 or you're welcome to drop it off and pick it up at a later date/time.»
