Welcome to the Lyon County Extension Office

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.

If you want an opportunity for your gift to double, please considering making a gift to the Anderson Building Match Challenge Grant. A local Extension supporter made a $50,000 gift to challenge other Lyon County residents to give to make functional improvements to the Anderson Building. See how your money can help invest in our community!
Make checks payable to the Emporia Community Foundation with "Anderson Building match" in the memo line. You may mail/drop donations off at the Lyon County Extension Office at 2632 W Hwy 50 in Emporia or to the Emporia Community Foundation.
Thanks for your consideration in helping to continue to make Lyon County and the Anderson Building a valuable destination!
