I find it hard to believe that it’s already November. Change is in the air. I’m really starting to feel the change in weather (not to mention, the changes in our health, environmental, and political climate).
We have the opportunity to engage, connect, and support some terrific urban Extension work taking place locally and around the country. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read on about some ways to get, and stay connected.
Be well, wear your masks, and wash your hands.
