Welcome to the Rolling Prairie District Site

The Rolling Prairie District covers Chautauqua and Elk Counties and is a great resource for finding the information you need. Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, and other places.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns. With locations in Sedan and Howard, we're here to help answer your questions about Crops and Livestock, 4-H & Youth Development, Lawn & Gardens, and Health & Nutrition. 

 

The Sedan Office is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 12 Noon and 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
 

The Howard Office is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 12 Noon and 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
