The entomologist who solves your carpenter bee problem. The horticulturist who saves your beloved oak tree. The nutritionist who teaches you a healthier way to live. The 4-H adviser who inspires growth in your child. These are the extension agents of the LSU AgCenter. Every day in every parish LSU AgCenter agents are fielding questions from homeowners and farmers. They are hosting programs and holding classes. They are working in your community, in the schools and building partnerships and applying research from AgCenter scientists to enhance everyday lives. If you have the opportunity to stop by your parish office of the Cooperative Extension Service, please do so. Our goal is to bring the land-grant university to the people.
