Our New Staff Members

Purdue Extension in Warrick County has added to their county staff!! Allow me to introduce you to Nicky and King Ralph...

Nicky and King Ralph have joined the staff for an upcoming program entitled "Munchy Adventures" that will teach youth about small pet care and nutrition.

As you can see... Nicky is very health conscious and enjoys spending time in the wheel getting his workout....

King Ralph on the other hand is more interested in the munchies.

We look forward to offering "Munchy Adventures" to local youth. For more information on the program, contact us at the Purdue Extension Warrick County office by calling 812-897-6100.
