UC Agriculture and Natural Resources: Big Dig Day

On June 5, UC Agriculture and Natural Resources launches our first ever independent statewide giving day to support local programs that you love like 4-H, Master Gardeners, and Master Food Preservers. We call it Big Dig Day—a day to dig in the soil, dig in your heart, and dig in your pocket to support the programs you care about!


On World Environment Day—we aim to deepen awareness of the need to preserve and enhance the environment. By donating to UC ANR and the Inyo & Mono Counties Cooperative Extension, you support the programs, research, and youth development to improve the lives of Californians.

UC Cooperative Extension delivers solutions to local problems in such areas as farming, nutrition, gardening, safe food preservation, resource conservation, and offers programs for youth and families. The effects of these efforts have been widespread - from the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the fibers which clothe us to the programs which sustain our natural environments and provide educational programs for youth.

UC ANR's local work in the Eastern Sierra through Cooperative Extension benefits from the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations that support our efforts to meet California’s toughest environmental challenges. An investment in UC ANR represents an investment in California's present and future.

We hope you can join us at midnight or visit us anytime during the 24 hour Big Dig Day! Make your gift then share your excitement on social media using #BigDigDay and #DigDeep or call a friend to let them know what’s happening.
