Many state universities have fabulous extension programs, and the University of Missouri is no exception. The website provides access to a cornucopia of material that will be of use to both those in the Show-Me State and those beyond its borders. A good place to start on the site is the In Demand area. Here, visitors can learn about building a compost bin, soil testing, plant diagnostics, real-time weather, and so on. Along the top of the site are nine sections that include Natural Resources, Nutrition and Health, and Business and Careers. Each of these sections includes news updates, high-quality fact sheets, and annotated lists of valuable external links, such as those to the Missouri Master Naturalist site. Back on the homepage, visitors can take advantage of the Calendar area to learn about upcoming events. Finally, visitors shouldn't miss the Wild Thing of the Week. Here they will find profiles of the acrobat ant, the viceroy caterpillar, and other things that run wild in Missouri.
