88 Expanding Our Audience to the Non Agricultural Community: I

Oral Session
ASA Section: Land Management & Conservation As our society becomes more and more urban and suburban most of the population does not know where their food comes from nor have the basic understanding of food production. The Agicultural Reseach Stations are excellent resources to tell the story of agriculture through specialized tours, demonstrations, and educational events. This session will highlight innovative ideas to reach out to our non traditional audiences.
