Successful extension programs provide information, build enthusiasm and develop capacity in the target audience. The end result should be an audience who are able to make better decisions or take action. In natural resource management, government, industry or community organisations often develop extension strategies to ensure they deliver effective extension services to their clients or members.

Stringybark Ecological has experience in developing extension strategies for different audiences. Our skills in this field are based on over 20 years of practical extension practice with very diverse audiences. We can help you define your audience and their learning needs and styles, then develop an extension program using formal and informal training; peer-to-peer networks; resources (websites and publications) and monitoring outcomes. We can also work with your extension team to plan the implementation of an extension strategy and we can provide training in successful extension techniques and methods.
