LITTLE ROCK – Find what you want to know faster and from any device on the newly launched
University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service site, www.uaex.uada.edu.
The revamped site debuted Feb. 26, with its public launch on Wednesday. It’s the first
renovation of the site since 2006. The Cooperative Extension Service first went online
