ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture is hosting Destination Ag Day on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to celebrate agriculture! Visitors will explore how agriculture impacts them in their daily lives through a variety of hands-on activities.
This family-fun-filled day will include crafts, a petting zoo, tractor displays, and interactive activities allowing guests of all ages to discover how important agriculture is. Guests can milk Buttercup, the fiberglass milking cow, experience the challenges birds face during a migration game, and create their own monarch caterpillar-themed bracelet!
“Destination Ag Day is not only just learning about agriculture, but also a celebration of how important it is to each of us every day,” states Kelly Scott, the Museum’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Supervisor.
Destination Ag has provided field trip experiences in agriculture and natural resources for more than 40,000 elementary-aged children since 2016. To date, the program has also connected with additional students and adults through outreach at schools, regional festivals, its Family Farm Book series, and its Traveling Trunks program in partnership with the Georgia Farm Bureau.
“We are always looking for exciting ways to increase engagement with agriculture and natural resources, and this event will allow us to connect even more children and families with where their food, fiber, and shelter come from,” says Scott.
Admission for the day is $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens. Every paid adult purchase includes free child (ages 17 and under) admission. For more information, interested persons can contact Scott at (229) 391-5221.
