Welcome to Trinity County!
4-H helps young people discover and develop their potential. It provides a wide variety of educational and enrichment experiences.
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).
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.
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.
We help to promote agritourism and support local agriculture through a website, workshops and other activities.

'Tis the time of year for Christmas Cactus, whether it's giving, receiving or enjoying one from previous years. This cactus in our office is very happy - it gets cool temperatures at night (55°F) thanks to our programmable thermostat and received 12 hours of darkness per night during the last month. Both conditions encourage blossoms. After it finishes blooming, the Master Gardeners pinch off the leaf segments to easily root and propagate new plants for gift-giving during the next holiday season. Try it!

Sudden Oak Death Information
Sudden Oak Death is caused by a non-native plant pathogen. It was recently found in the southwestern portion of Trinity County. This plant disease has the potential to cause significant oak mortality, with associated changes in our forest ecosystem and increased wildfire risk.
You can help prevent the spread of this disease, which is dispersed through plant materials, soil, nursery plants and forest products. There are many host plants in our area which are not killed by the disease, but which serve as a source of infection.
