Stretching from the foothills above the Sacramento Valley through rugged mountains to Lake Tahoe, south through the wine country of the foothills of Amador and Calaveras Counties to the edges of Tuolumne County, the "Golden Counties" of California have a terrain as diverse as their population. The pioneering spirit that drew the gold seekers of yesterday still thrives among our residents. Our counties remain lands that are rich in opportunity and continue to prosper through their people.
Central Sierra Nevada Cooperative Extension Mission Statement
The University of California Cooperative Extension of the Central Sierra territory provides science-based information and educational programs to solve local issues in areas of agriculture, natural resources, nutrition, and youth development that improve the social, economic and environment quality for all residents.
The University of California Cooperative Extension office of the Central Sierra currently has three programs, which operate with the help of volunteers. These programs are 4-H, Master Gardeners and Master Food Preservers. We encourage anyone interested in volunteering to contact your local Cooperative Extension offices.

UCCE Central Sierra 2011-2012 Annual Report
This past year the UC Cooperative Extension began a journey of the first Multi-County-Partnership (MCP). We accomplished a great deal as we joined forces with the four counties of our new MCP. On behalf of our entire team, we are pleased to share our 2011-2012 Annual Report with you. We have enjoyed a very productive and successful year. This is largely the result of your participation, partnership, and support of our programs and activities.
