KBS Research Station Field Day planned for Sept 8

Mat Haan, KBS pasture-based dairy project manager, Julie Doll, KBS LTER (Long-Term Ecological Research) outreach and education coordinator, and Dennis Pennington, Michigan State University Extension bioenergy educator, are putting forth a great effort to market one of our programs. The three are planning the Kellogg Biological Station Agricultural Research Field Day. The event will be Wednesday, September 8, at the KBS Farming Systems Center in Hickory Corners and will showcase some of the sustainable agriculture and bioenergy research being conducted on site.

 In the morning, participants will choose between a tour of the dairy or the crop plots. In the afternoon, everyone will tour the bioenergy plots at the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center.

 The cost is $5 per person, and this includes a barbecue lunch and research poster session. Registration begins at 8:30; the event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 I was especially impressed with their use of video on YouTube to promote the event. You can find a full complement of details on the event at http://kbs.msu.edu/.
