We are looking forward to your visit! We hope that the Agricultural & Environmental Awareness Day will provide both an educational and fun-filled morning for you and your students. Please review the following before you come to ensure a successful field study.
Let students know what they will be seeing. Our theme is Agricultural and Environmental Awareness, and a map and list of stations are available on this website. Choose what you would like to see before you arrive. We will assign you a first station, but then you may pick and choose what you would like to visit on your own.
Restrooms are located in the NESPAL building.
What to Wear
This is an outside event. Temperatures may be cool, then change to hot. Please dress accordingly. There will be a lot of walking. Teachers and students should wear closed-toe shoes which will be comfortable. No flip flops or sandals should be worn. Please be sure that parents or chaperones are aware of this information. No high heeled shoes!
Based on previous field experiences, we have found that teachers like to stay with their own classes so we will not divide into groups but will let you move as a class. If you feel that you need more help with your class, please arrange for additional chaperones before coming to the event.
Format of Program
Each station will last 15-20 minutes, and you will move at your own pace visiting the stations you want. Please be sure to review map on this site before arriving. As soon as a school arrives, teachers may choose the first station to visit, and go ahead and begin if it’s 9:00 a.m. Some schools have to travel farther than others, but we will not hold up those who arrive at 9:00 a.m. to wait on others.
Please check the list of stations on this website as well as the map to see where you will be located. Directions to our campus and parking instructions are also available.
