  • Over 100 residents participated in programs on disease prevention & management, food safety, behavioral health, nutrition, and physical activity
  • Over 250 residents participated in agriculture and gardening programs and services

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