CNRE’s outreach and engagement efforts are often led by our Extension faculty and staff, who strive to provide Virginia residents (and, really, everyone) with research-based advice to solve natural resource-related and environmental problems.
If you have a natural resource-related question, we have an expert who can help you find an answer. View the list of general areas and experts here, in Extension Answers.
Founded with the overall goal of putting university knowledge into the hands of the people, VCE provides you with information, education, and tools you can use. Not limited to natural resources topics, VCE also has experts who focus on agriculture, community development, family, finance, and health.
The publications available from VCE provide clear advice and easy-to-understand explanations that are based on scientific research.
