Scott County ANR Information

If you need a plant, weed or bug identified, bring it to our office and Tom Springstun, our ANR Educator, should be able to assist you with that. 

Please call 812-752-8450 to make sure Tom is in the office and available to help you. 

You can always take some photos of the specimen and email those to Tom for ID as well at


If you need to take a sample of your soil or hay to send off for analysis, we have the equipment in the Extension office that you can borrow to take those samples.  Stop by our office Monday- Friday, 8:30 -4:30 and we can loan them out to you.  (please call before you come to make sure someone else is not borrowing the equipment at that time)

The Purdue Extension Master Gardener Program trains gardening enthusiasts as volunteers to assist Purdue Extension with home horticulture education in Indiana communities. Purdue Extension Master Gardeners are "Helping Others Grow!" 

When will the next Scott/Washington County Master Gardener class be?  The usual schedule has been “train one year, skip the next year to get those MG Interns certified as Active MG’s, then train again the following year”.  So, since we trained in the fall of 2020, our next class will start August 30, 2022 if we have enough enrollees.

Let the Extension Office know by August 1, 2022 if you are interested in this training by calling 812-752-8450 or email Tom Springstun at or you can click here to see the flyer about the class or here for the application to be filled out and sent to Tom at the above email address
