The Little Blue River runs through the eastern part of the District, and the Solomon River just clips the southwest corner.

Our programs include: 4-H & Youth Development, Crops, Livestock, Adult Development & Aging, Foods, Nutrition & Health, Home & Family, Community Development and Lawn & Garden area.
