Community invited for College of Agriculture and Natural Resources’ annual, signature event on April 27

The University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) will host its 44th annual Ag Day at Townsend Hall in Newark on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission and parking are free and the event is open to the public, rain or shine.

As a student-run event for the community, Ag Day will have community and collegiate organizations on hand to show off agriculture and natural resources, as well as educate the public through numerous demonstrations, events, food and attractions. The event has something for everyone — games, activities, a livestock display with farm animals, entertainment, hayrides, plant sales, educational exhibits, entertainment, and the famous UDairy Creamery ice cream. The 2019 Ag Day is a special one as the college celebrates its 150th anniversary with the theme “Cultivating our Legacy.”

“Ag Day is a wonderful chance for our groups to educate the public on the strides forward in agriculture and natural resource management,” said wildlife ecology and conservation major Justin Roure. “This year we will have a wonderful array of demonstrations, entertainment, food, and educational booths.”

Several UD clubs will be present, including the Entomology Club, Food Science Club, Wildlife Society, and the Animal Science Club. UD Botanic Gardens Annual Plant Sale, which runs from April 24 to May 4, is also offered on Ag Day.

The Ag Day Committee is looking for student volunteers for setup on April 26 and during the event on April 27.

Please note: For the safety of visitors and animal exhibits, please leave pets at home.

Ag Day includes educational exhibits and demonstrations for the entire family.
