At Nevada Field Day & Ag Expo on June 2, visitors will be treated to a variety of hands-on activities, wine tasting, demonstrations and giveaways. The event is hosted by the University’s College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources including its Experiment Station and Extension units.
Nevada Field Day has been a College tradition for decades, and for over 65 years, faculty have used the Valley Road Field Lab to provide hands-on educational experiences to students and to conduct research. The field lab has been home to hundreds of programs, such as those focused on raising healthy livestock, controlling noxious weeds, developing low-water-use crops, and preserving air and water quality.
“June is great time of year for people to visit the University’s Valley Road Field Lab,” said Bill Payne, dean of the College. “There will be a lot to see and do, and it really helps people understand how we blend the missions of the University in terms of teaching, research and engaging with our communities to serve Nevadans in their everyday lives.”
Faculty and staff will be on hand to provide information on the College’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs, its research and engagement programs and Extended Studies – noncredit professional development programs and industry-specific training programs.
Admission is free. Persons in need of special accommodations or assistance should contact Paul Lessick, civil rights and compliance coordinator, at email@example.com or 702-257-5577 at least five days prior to the event.
