The Douglas County Extension Director serves as the administrative leader of the county’s extension programs and staff. The Director is administratively responsible to the K-State Research and Extension Assistant Director for Field Operations and the County Extension Board.  In addition to County Agents, Douglas County Extension programs are supported by program coordinators and assistants, a dedicated staff of office professionals, and numerous program volunteers. Educational efforts are guided by volunteers that serve on one-of-four Program Development Committees (PDC). The PDC collectively constitutes the County Extension Council.

Bates has worked with the Master Gardeners since coming to Douglas County.  I have truly enjoyed  working with him and he has  done a great job working with the EMGs.  Congratulations!
