Cooperative Extension puts a wealth of useful, research-based information at your fingertips!

COVID-19 Update (September 15th, 2020):

The Yates County Office Building is open to the general public from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, as part of the effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, appointments are preferred and some departments and services will be subject to continued limitations as described here

CCE Yates Staff will continue to work from home and continue work in the community (agriculture, gardening, natural resources) using social distancing best practices. Should you need to reach any of our staff members, visit our Staff page for their email addresses. You can also send us a message via our Facebook page. For less time-sensitive matters, call our office at 315-536-5123 and leave a voicemail. 

CCE Yates has developed a reopening plan to facilitate the transitioning staff back to their primary place of work in response to the Governor’s New York Forward phased approach to re-open New York State. 

This document has been reviewed by the Yates CCE Board of Directors as of June 24, 2020

This plan will be updated as changes occur and will be posted for the public via our website, social media, and local media. Stay safe everyone.

In addition to what you'll find here on our website, we offer free or low-cost workshops on topics that range from how to start a vegetable garden to making a home spending plan. Explore our links, check out our upcoming events, then give us a call or visit our  Education Center to learn more. We're here to help, with information -- and people -- you can trust!
