Welcome to Trinity County!

Calendar

Remote, scenic, mountainous Trinity County is a recreational paradise in northwest California.  You can explore the Trinity Alps or Yolla Bolly Wilderness, raft the Trinity River, visit historic gold mining towns, drive scenic byways, or boat on lakes set amid towering peaks.  Enjoy hiking, mountain biking, camping, horseback riding and world famous steelhead and salmon fishing.  We invite you to visit local vineyards, stay at a working ranch, or tour the award-winning Weaverville Community Forest.

Below are some of the programs offered by Trinity County Cooperative Extension, which is a division of the University of California:

4-H Program

4-H helps young people discover and develop their potential. It provides a wide variety of educational and enrichment experiences.

Master Gardener Program

Master Gardeners extend UC research-based information to the public about home horticulture. In exchange for the training and materials received from the University of California, master gardeners perform volunteer services in a variety of venues. 

Nutrition, Family and Consumer Science Program

Our program promotes healthy lifestyles in Trinity County by addressing childhood obesity, family and consumer well-being, food security and food safety.  We serve low income people with quality food and nutrition education programs and supervise the UC CalFresh Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Nutrition Education Program (FSNEP).

Forestry

The forestry program works with private forest landowners, registered professional foresters, agencies, and forest industry personnel, with an emphasis on educational outreach programs focused on forest stewardship and wildfire protection.
