San Bernardino County Programs


The mission of UCCE San Bernardino County is to develop and extend practical research-based information in agriculture and natural resource to the residents and workforce of San Bernardino County through a trained core of academics, staff, and volunteers.  

Our academics, staff, and volunteers reached over 35,000 county residents in fiscal year 2018/2019.  Learn more here: 2019 UC Cooperative Extension San Bernardino County Annual Report

Click on the program page links on the left for more information on our programs and ways to receive services or become involved.

Please note that, due to COVID-19 concerns, all UCCE San Bernardino County face-to-face program activities, classes, and other events scheduled through the end of June 2021 have been postponed or converted to zoom meetings or other distance learning formats. However, our academics, program managers, and community educators remain on the job and available to assist you via phone and email (left column 'contact us').  Volunteer Master Gardeners continue to address your home horticulture inquiries through their email helplines (mgsanbern@ucanr.edu).  Thank you for your understanding and your flexibility as we continue to provide research-based information in new and novel formats during this difficult time.
