Strengthening community - enhancing lives

We invite you to join us!

OSU Extension has served Clackamas County for over 100 years, through pandemics, economic downturns, world conflicts and wildfires. We remain resilient today, and in fact our commitment to bring science-based information, assistance, and resources to the communities we serve has never been stronger. Part of that resiliency is adapting to changing community needs. As Clackamas County grows, Extension is keeping pace through expanding our program services and reach and embarking on an innovative plan to build a brand new state-of-the-science, Extension Education Center.

This advanced wood technology, Net Zero building will be the first of its kind in Clackamas County—showcasing our productive timber industry and exemplifying sustainable living while serving our growing community for the next 100 years.

The new Education Center will include about 22,000 square feet of indoor office and public areas, an expanded Master Gardener Clinic, a demonstration and teaching kitchen, and a conference facility seating up to 150. In addition, an outdoor teaching greenhouse, landscape and demonstration gardens, and environmental study areas will complement the site.
