|Hello from Heather|
We are working with the State, Jackson County, and NC State University to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To help prevent the spread of the virus, effective immediately and until further notice, the Jackson County Extension Center is CLOSED.
Our Extension Agents are still available via email, phone and other technological means, and will continue to assist you to the best of their ability. Contact information for our Jackson County Extension Staff can be found at: https://jackson.ces.ncsu.
Please know that these changes are intended to protect the health and safety of our community while striving to provide the resources and services you need. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and act consistent with local, state and national recommendations.
