Grant County Extension Office


Set on the edge of the beautiful Gila Wilderness, Grant County has a lot to offer.

Grant County is rich in culture, history and natural resources, and is the gateway to the Gila Wilderness, with so many places to see. Grant County contains many treasures such as, mountain cliff dwellings of ancient people, historic forts, a city of rocks, an open-pit copper mine, two winding rivers, family owned cattle ranches and farms and beautiful desert sunsets. Located in the southwest corner of New Mexico, Grant County offers a range of ecosystems, including desert, grasslands and mountains. Grant County is named for our 18th president Ulysses S Grant. The largest city and county seat is Silver City, located at the edge of the Mogollon Mountain range.

2014 Record Books

  • Grant County Extension Office - 4H
    It's that time of year--when we elect officers, get ready for our awards banquet and...well, to get those awards, we fill out record books! To finish your projects you should at least fill out the project record form that comes with the materials, but to win project awards, fill out the complete record book and then one project form for each project. It doesn't take much time--about as much as doing a few nights' worth of homework--but the long term benefits are very high. This year, we are offering the record books digitally as well as in paper format. Click on the link to our 4-H page to find out more.
