Something Old, Something New for Visitors during Virtual APD 2020, Part TWO. The Pasto Agricultural Museum presents oral histories and cutting edge science research tours during Ag Progress Days 2020

Visitors to virtual APD can "hop on the big blue bus" and travel across the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center to learn about the work that continues year round.

Visitors to virtual APD can "hop on the big blue bus" and travel across the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center to learn about the work that continues year round.

Visitors to Ag Progress Days are familiar with the big blue Penn State buses that shuttle between the top of Main Street and research sites. This year, despite not physically being on the grounds due to COVID-19 restrictions, virtual visitors can learn about the latest research efforts across the 2,200 acre site.

Interviews with scientists, graduate students, and partners have been curated by the Pasto Agricultural Museum. Using a StoryMap tool, and with support from our colleagues at the University Libraries Maps Library,  we showcase some of the most popular tours from past Ag Progress Day events. And we've included some new "stops" as well. Spending a few minutes navigating the map, visitors can learn about pasture forage, riparian buffers, hydroponics systems, industrial hemp cultivation and much more! Many scientists and educators featured on our TOURS are also delivering LIVE Webinars during the week. Learn More links at each "stop" will connect to the webinar schedule and registration page.

The Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center and Ag Progress Days site is closed to ALL visitors. Only authorized research personnel are permitted on the grounds at this time.

Be sure to check out Ag Progress Days, "I Remember Ag Progress Days: Oral History Project," and Research TOURS of the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center.
