UI Extension reschedules workshops, delivering 4-H, other programs in alternate ways

by William A. Warren, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Clearwater Extension Educator

While we have rescheduled our University of Idaho Extension workshops that were to be held in March and April until late May and June, we are developing the ability to deliver our programs and information by alternate means in case we are not able to have in-person meetings by the rescheduled dates.

We are also developing plans to maintain contact with our clients and provide them with information during pandemic restrictions when the office is closed.

I want to assure everyone that we will do everything possible to maintain our regular service of conducting educational programs and providing clients with information and consultation, but that these will be delivered in a different way than they have in the past for the duration of the pandemic restrictions, such as via on-line learning platforms such as Zoom, email, and by phone. We do not yet know if we will be able to continue to mail things out during the restrictions.

Even with our office closed you can still call our office number (208-476-4434) and we will retrieve voice mail messages remotely and get back to you (My direct contact information is below. Call my cell not my office phone if you want to talk directly to me.) Meladi will be able to retrieve voice mail message left on the main office phone remotely and get back to you.

Clearwater County 4-H will continue to accept member enrollments via https://id.4honline.com. Virtual meetings and activities will be offered soon. Please feel free to contact the 4-H office at 208-476-8964 for more information.

If you have any questions or need information please don't hesitate to contact me or Meladi via email or phone.

We will keep you updated via email on what's going on with Extension. You will hear more from us soon.

Please follow the social distancing recommendations and directives from the governor and the Health District to protect yourself and others.

Stay safe!
