The Screven County Extension Office is open but the lobby area is closed.  To maintain a safe environment, we will attempt to handle as much public/client business as possible through phone, email and curbside service.  

We are still accepting soil, water, and plant samples. There is a place to put them with instructions; located right beside the front door of our office.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.

Telephone: (912) 564-2064
Email: uge3251@uga.edu

In addition, UGA Extension has many valuable resources for assisting our community citizens during this time. Please visit https://extension.uga.edu/to…/timely-topics/emergencies.html .

This is uncharted territory for all of us; we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to provide Extension services to the citizens of Screven County.
