Central Kansas District

Welcome to the Central Kansas District


July 7, 2020


Dear Extension Friends,

Both Central Kansas District Offices are open to the public, but will have limited staff on site as we slowly transition everyone back to a safe and healthy work environment.

Those planning to visit the offices are asked to practice social distancing and wear a mask.  Only one patron will be allowed in the offices at a time.  While appointments are not required at this time, we encourage visitors to call ahead to see if the person they are needing will be in the office as some agents and staff will continue to work remotely during this time.  All CKD employees are available to assist you Monday through Friday from 8AM to 5PM by calling (785) 309-5850 for Salina or (785) 392-2147 for Minneapolis.

We appreciate your help with protecting the health, wellness and safety of our staff, families and communities.

Our team is excited to welcome you to our offices.  Please do not hesitate to call, email or come by if you have questions.


The Central Kansas Extension District Governing Board

Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, family & consumer sciences, youth development, horticulture, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, and other places.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.

Central Kansas Extension District includes Saline and Ottawa Counties. Extension agents and support staff located in Salina and Minneapolis are available and welcome your questions and participation in educational programs. We are so much more than just a Web site.
