On Saturday, Sept. 10, the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources at the University of Nevada, Reno will be hosting the Agricultural Experiment Station Valley Road Field Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The College encourages anyone interested in the many different types of research performed at the College to attend.
There will be tours, wine tastings, a children’s area, an antique engine and tractor display, a rainfall simulation display, the Great Basin Rangelands Research Unit Grand Opening and a souvenir shingle branding.
The event features four different tours:
Each of the tours begins at 9:15 a.m. and the Greenhouse Complex and bio-renewable fuel production tours will continue throughout the day.
The field day will take place at the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station's Valley Road Station Field Lab, 1000 Valley Road. Parking will be available to the public on Evans on the south side of the University’s John Sala Intramural Fields and a free shuttle will take guests to the Valley Road Station Field.
Lunch will be from Wolf Pack Meats and available for purchase from University of Nevada, Reno student organizations, and the proceeds will support students on campus.
