LARGO - The University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences Extension is celebrating 100 years of service this year.

Events at Pinellas County Extension will begin this summer with a school garden summer camp at the Parks and Conservation Services in June. A commemorative video is being developed and plans are under way.

The Cooperative Extension was created through the federal Smith-Lever Act in 1914. The extension has served Pinellas County since May 8, 1914, which has grown as an agricultural area and now as an urban community.

County residents and visitors benefit from information on healthy lifestyles, financial management, youth life skills, water conservation, energy conservation, coastal sustainability, green practices and Florida Friendly Landscaping programs.

Pinellas County Extension offers programming at the Extension office, 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Call 727-582-2100. The Largo office is open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Extension also offers programming at the Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center, 3940 Keystone Road, Tarpon Springs, 727-453-6800; and at the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, 1800 Weedon Drive NE, St. Petersburg, 727-453-6500.

For more information, visit www.pinellascountyextension.org and find Pinellas Extension on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Pinellas County Extension is a partnership between Pinellas County government and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences as part of a nationwide network of land grant universities. The University of Florida is an equal-access/equal-opportunity institution.
