University of Florida Extension Lake County

As part of Lake County's commitment to public health and safety, UF/IFAS Lake County Extension office (aka the Ag Center) will provide services through email or telephonic communication to help prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) effective 3/20/2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please call 352-343-4101 for more information or visit www.lakecounty.gov/COVID-19 for a list of available online services and the latest COVID-19 updates.

While we may not be available for walk in visitors at this time, please know that we are very much still at work. Our Extension agents, and their support staff, are working tirelessly to make online learning opportunities available to for our community. Some of the efforts currently underway include: a virtual plant clinic where clients can have plant disease diagnosed remotely, virtual and DIY site visits with our commercial ag agents, a virtual 4-H day camp to keep our youth engaged, educated, and entertained, and online educational programs that address everything from pasture management to peach production. Our website and our Facebook page are being updated regularly as these resources become available. Additionally, agents are available via email (see list below) and are happy to schedule videoconferencing and telephone consultations with our clients.

We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate these uncharted waters. We are all in this together and we will get through this together.
