Ag Day

Mar 21st

National Ag Day is held by The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) and is an event dedicated to increasing public awareness of agriculture’s vital role in society. National Ag Day began in 1973.

Everything we eat, use or wear every day is provided by agriculture. Learn more about the importance of agriculture in our world today at Discovery Park’s celebration of National Ag Day on March 21.
