At the North Central Region Water Network, we are dedicated to enhancing connectivity and learning, sharing the latest Extension research and knowledge across the region, strengthening the resource base for Extension education, and coordinating initiatives with measurable short and long term impacts.

Over the last three years Network initiatives and other projects leveraging Network resources have generated over $5.4 million in additional funds for extension in the North Central Region. Join us on our journey to turn science into success!
