The WSU Mount Vernon NWREC Annual Field Day is a free event open to the public. Beginning at 3:00 p.m. faculty and graduate students will host a walking tour of some of the nearly 150 acres of active research plots at the Center. Two tractor-driven wagons will be available for non-walkers.

Graduate students will present their projects and be available for questions and discussion.
