Baraga County message from the district coordinator 2018-19

Michigan State University Extension continues to serve the residents of Baraga County through the educational process that applies knowledge to critical issues, needs and opportunities.

Over the past year, Michigan State University (MSU) Extension partnered with Baraga County to continue strengthening youth, families, businesses and communities. Your MSU Extension staff members, grounded in local relationships, serve by bringing the university’s research and resources to provide outreach and education in the areas Baraga County residents need it most.

In this report, we’re excited to share about the people and programs that are improving the lives of Baraga County residents in many ways, including helping grow Michigan’s agriculture economy, encouraging sustainable use of our natural resources, controlling health care costs by giving individuals the information they need to manage chronic illness and preparing tomorrow’s leaders. From an in-person workshop to online education, MSU Extension professionals work every day to provide the most current information when people need it to ensure their success – in the workplace, at home and in the community.

We’re passionate about serving Baraga County and are looking forward to a new year of serving. Thank you for your continued support of MSU Extension and for partnering with us to make a difference.

Paul Putnam, District Director
