Welcome to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County!

Since 1913, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County (CCEUC) has responded to the needs of local residents with unbiased, research-based information, tools and education that people have come to depend on and trust. Our programs are developed in direct response to community input, and are based on the most current information available from Cornell and other Land Grant universities from across the nation.

CCEUC is a part of the Cooperative Extension land grant system, a partnership between County, State, and Federal governments that is administered in New York State through Cornell University and enjoys the benefits of a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization. Each county's Cooperative Extension association is independent and works to serve the needs of the county in which it is located.  

CCEUC Programs offer classes for the public that are designed for all ages and all levels of skills and knowledge. A list of our upcoming classes can be found in the Events page.

Some classes, like ServSafe, a food safety class, are offered on an ongoing basis. Some occur annually, such as the Philadelphia Flower Show. Others, like Youth Tractor Safety, are offered annually or when there is interest from the community.

We strive to ensure that our programs are available to the community. If you need financial assistance to attend one of our programs, please contact our office (845) 340-3990.

We welcome your ideas and involvement in our efforts. If you are interested in how CCE Ulster sets policies and program priorities, or if you'd like more information on how to get involved, see the contact information for Program Leaders.
