The University of Wyoming’s Sheridan Research and Extension Center will host its annual field day and open house at 1090 Dome Loop Wednesday, July 27.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is a unique opportunity to “interact directly with the people who are doing the research,” says Brian Mealor, director of the Sheridan Research and Extension Center.
Families with children are welcome to attend. To RSVP or for more information, call (307) 673-2856 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Watt Agriculture Center, and field tours at the Adams Ranch begin at 9 a.m. During the tours, researchers will give brief presentations on their current projects and answer questions.
Featured topics include grapevine variety trials, bulbous bluegrass control, alternative forage plots, dry bean and pea selection fields, and alternative alfalfa weevil control options.
“I’m very excited about the diversity of research that’s happening at the Sheridan Research and Extension Center -- and that people can come and learn about so many things at one event,” Mealor says.
Lunch will be served at noon. The Sheridan Research and Extension Center team will lead a wrap-up discussion during the meal.
Other UW Extension field day events will take place at the Powell Research and Extension Center Thursday, July 21, and at the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle Wednesday, Aug. 10. The Laramie Research and Extension Center will host its annual field day this fall.
