College of Agriculture & Natural Resources (AGNR) Open House
We hope you enjoy the time you spend with us each fall and learn more about who we are and what we do. Unfortunately, there will not be an AGNR Open House this October. We do hope to resume the Open House in 2016 and will keep you posted.
In the meantime, you can visit us at the U-Learn Farm at the Maryland State Fair August 28 - September 7, 2015.
We'll also be at Maryland Day at University of Maryland College Park in April 2016. You'll find us at Ag Avenue!
The 2014 AGNR Open House was a huge success! So many smiling faces and busy hands. Besides all the prizes that went to our school age visitors, we gave away eight doorprizes to adults - hoodies, hats, and even tickets to a 2015 University of Maryland women's lacrosse game.
Prizes went to individuals in Ellicott City, Bowie, Columbia, Dayton, Clarksville, and Manchester. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
