WSU Extension – Moving!
For Immediate Release
Date: February 19, 2013
Subject: WSU Jefferson County Extension Moving to Cupola House in Port Townsend
Port Hadlock, WA: After two decades in Port Hadlock, Washington State University Jefferson County Extension will be returning to Port Townsend in the seat of Jefferson County. WSU will be relocating the first week of March to the Cupola House at Point Hudson. This move is a wonderful opportunity for WSU to engage with county and city of Port Townsend partners, while maintaining a strong presence in the broader county community. The WSU Jefferson County Extension program will be celebrating our 100th anniversary in 2014 and look forward to being housed in a historic district to mark this event. Prior to our present location in Port Hadlock, the extension office was located in the Customs House (Post Office) on Washington Street in Port Townsend.
While the move will transfer the WSU offices to Port Townsend, our points of service will remain in the communities that we serve – from Chimacum to Kalaloch.
WSU remains committed to delivering outstanding educational and research based information and programming to local residents throughout the region. Our current programs focus on Water and Natural Resources, Agricultural Development, Horticultural Science, and 4-H Youth & Families. WSU has several volunteer programs and opportunities, including the Master Gardener Program, Beach Watchers, and 4-H. The Washington Sea Grant program is also co-located with WSU Extension as is the Jefferson County Noxious Weed program. The office will be closed from March 1st until March 10th for the physical move and transition of the program to its new location. Our opening day will me Monday morning, 9am on March 11th, 2013. For more information, please contact: email@example.com OR call 379-5610 ext 200. Our new mailing address will be;
