2018 NWREC Field Day

July 12, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm


The WSU Mount Vernon NWREC Annual Field Day is a free event open to the public. Beginning at 3:00 pm faculty and graduate students will host a walking tour of some of the nearly 150 acres of active research plots at the Center. Hear about current research projects and learn how work at the Center impacts growers, consumers, agricultural businesses and local economies throughout the region. Two tractor-driven wagons will be available for non-walkers. At 4:45 pm we will return to the Sakuma Auditorium to provide an opportunity for more in-depth questions. Our program will conclude at 5:30 pm. Visitors are invited to stay for a barbecue in the Center’s Auditorium. Enjoy a locally prepared meal and help us welcome new Dean of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, Dr. André-Denis Wright.
