Brittany Clark

The Penn State Extension office in Franklin County welcomes Brittany Clark as its new field and forage crops educator.

Franklin County welcomed a new Penn State Extension Field and Forage Crops Team member Brittany Clark to its staff Jan. 2.

Clark received an undergraduate degree in Biology from Iowa State University. During that time, she assisted staff in the Department of Entomology, as well as the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with research focusing on integrated pest management in soybean cropping systems and projects related to aquatic ecology. Clark recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a master’s degree in Plant Protection and Pest Management.

Her graduate research looked at wetlands adjacent to agricultural

fields and their ability to provide refuge for beneficial arthropods. While earning her master’s, Clark interned with the University of Georgia Extension program in Clarke County, Georgia.

Clark is eager to serve farmers, producers and residents of Franklin County, welcoming all inquiries related to field and forage crop production. In addition, she looks forward to collaborating with Franklin County conservation, private industry, and local watershed groups.

Clark can be reached at the Franklin County Extension office: (717) 263-9226, or by email:
