Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, May 7, 2014 7B Extension celebrates centennial with science "One of the most profound ways in which UC touches people's lives is through the work of Cooperative Extension," said Janet Napolitano, president, University of California. UC Cooperative Extension launches its first crowd-sourced science project May 8 to commemorate the organization's 100th anniversary. On May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed an act of Congress to channel scientific advances from university research to everyday people working and living in the United States. On May 8, 2014, California residents will collaborate on a dataset that further connects public higher education with ' community. "UC Cooperative Extension is all about science and service," said Barbara Allen-Diaz, UC vice president for the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, which administers Cooperative Extension in California. "To celebrate the anniversary of Cooperative Extension, we are asking Californians to help us collect scientific data so that all of us will better understand our natural, agricultural and urban communities." Everyone in California is invited to take part. To participate, go to beascientist.ucanr.edu and record your observations on three questions: --How many pollinators do you see? --How do you conserve water? --Where is food grown in your community? Cooperative Extension began in Plumas and Sierra counties in 1946 and 1947, respectively, when members of the Feather River Livestock Association directors agreed to investigate the formation and development of 4-H clubs. Today, Cooperative Extension advisors are Holly George, with expertise in agriculture, livestock and range management; and Mike De Lasaux, with forestry and Firewise Communities expertise. The 4-H Youth DeVelopment Program is managed by Lucia Biunno. A new UC Master Gardener program was launched in January with Cody Reed leading this educational effort.
