Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County has a wealth of information available to homeowners on gardening, landscaping, lawn care, houseplants, wildlife, natural resources, insects, and much more. Whether you want to know how to grow a better tomato, how to attract birds and butterflies to your yard, or how to control grubs in the lawn, we will do our best to help you find research-based answers.

What We Do

We offer classes, fact sheets, troubleshooting, diagnostics, soil testing, and more. We want you to have fun exploring our web-based resources, but also encourage you to stop by any one of our offices with questions and/or samples, call us, and attend our hands-on workshops and events.

In addition, we have active Master Gardener Volunteer programs in Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties. The mission of the Master Gardener Volunteer Program is to train volunteers to teach others how to protect the environment and grow plants more effectively. Master Gardener volunteers are a key link in helping the Cooperative Extension accomplish its mission in counties throughout the state.
