MSU Extension Newaygo office relocated
Fremont, Mich. -- The Michigan State University Extension Serving Newaygo county has relocated to the Educational Service Center building owned by Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency (NC RESA), in Fremont. Due to the sale of the Regional Center for AgriScience and Career Advancement (RCASCA), formerly known as the Providence High School campus, Extension Services was forced to move, and has now secured space that will allow them to continue to effectively serve the needs of Newaygo County.
The new location will allow MSU Extension to continue a history of over 100 years serving the communities within Newaygo County through a broad selection of programs and services ranging from 4-H youth programming, to supporting various agricultural sectors, providing environmental education, community health and nutrition education, and much more.
“We are excited to continue our relationship with NC RESA and appreciate that the relocation will allow us to be easily accessible to the public, and to be settled in a professional environment. From selling soil test kits, to answering calls about spongy moths, it is essential that the public can easily connect with MSU Extension services and staff”, MSU Extension District Director James Kelly shared. The office phone numbers and email address remain the same, but any visitors or correspondence should now be directed to 4747 W. 48th St. Fremont, MI 49412.
MSU Extension provides essential educational programs that address critical needs for county residents, industries and communities in the areas of 4-H youth development, community and economic development, agriculture and natural resources, and numerous programs to support children, youth, families and communities.
The new Newaygo County office will be open to walk-in traffic from 8am-4:00pm Wednesday – Friday, and by appointment only on Monday and Tuesday. The telephone number is 231-924-0500. Additional information may be found on the MSU Extension Web site at www.msue.msu.edu.
