We’re Reopening for Walk-in Services!

— Written By

Starting June 1, 2021, our office at 721 Foster Street will reopen to the public with walk-in hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. During these hours, members of the public are welcome to visit the office to consult with Cooperative Extension staff.

N.C. Cooperative Extension of Durham County offers research-based programing and education in a wide variety of areas including: agriculture, horticulture, 4-H Youth Development, Family & Consumer Sciences, parenting, civic education, and parent & family advocacy.

The office has been closed to the public due to COVID-19 pandemic safety restrictions since March 23, 2020 when Durham County Government declared a state of emergency. The office continued to provide all services using virtual, call-in, and socially distanced service delivery methods. Soil sample supply pick up and sample drop off remains available 7-days a week with a pick up and return box located outside.

“With the increased number of community members who are vaccinated against COVID-19, we are excited to be open to the public and address in-person needs,” said Donna Rewalt, Durham County Extension Director.

Visitors to the building should come to the front door of the building between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Face masks are required for entry into the building.

On Fridays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Durham County Welcome Baby program will continue to provide drive-through diaper and clothing distribution.
