2:29 p.m., March 15, 2012--Ag Day, the annual event held by the University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), is once again fast approaching.
UD students, faculty and staff and the greater Newark community are encouraged to come out on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., for great food, music and interactive educational exhibits and demonstrations about agriculture and natural resources.

Organized by staff and students of CANR, Ag Day works with over 80 organizations to bring hands-on exhibits, demonstrations and activities for kids and adults alike. From petting a farm animal or racing cockroaches, to listening to local bands and enjoying the UDairy Creamery’s newest flavors, there is plenty to keep visitors busy all day.
Ag Day will be held at CANR’s Townsend Hall, located at 531 South College Avenue in Newark. Admission and parking are free, with minimal charges for food, pony rides and hayrides, with the profits going back to student and community organizations. And don’t miss the popular Ag Day plant sales offered by the UD Botanic Gardens, Master Gardeners and Horticulture Club.
