The University of Illinois Extension's catchphrase is "Your doorway to the University," and this website offers exactly that. The Extension's work is designed to create learning partnerships that put knowledge to work in areas including food security and safety, environmental stewardship, and sustainable and profitable food production and marketing systems. Over 2.5 million Illinois residents take part in Extension programs every year, and many people visit this website to download and view their web-based materials. On the homepage, visitors can use the Learn more about… area to investigate topics such as commercial agriculture, energy, and natural resources and the environment. Each of these areas contains helpful lessons, fact sheets, and more dealing with topics as varied as firewood in Illinois, choosing a financial professional, and growing strawberries. Visitors can also use the Today's Events area to browse through upcoming events sponsored by Extension, or follow Extension on a range of social media.
