Reminder

NYS Agricultural Experiment Station 125th Anniversary Open House: September 15

   Healthy food and healthy plants meet healthy people on a healthy planet at an Open House to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES) in Geneva, NY, on Saturday, September 15, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.  The event is free and open to the public.  Enjoy exotic butterflies and other live insects; tours of labs, farms, and the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park; tractors and heirloom gardens; wine, cider and jam tastings; a farmers’ market, and more.

   Cornell University scientists at the Station will use interactive exhibits and field tours of cutting-edge research and outreach to showcase how their work impacts agriculture, food, and bio-based industries in New York.  There will be hands-on exhibits for children of all ages while the contributions to agriculture that researchers at the Station have made over the years will be highlighted in historical tours and displays.

   "Everyone is welcome to come and participate in the celebration," said Station director Thomas J. Burr.  "We were established by an act of the state legislature to promote agriculture in New York through scientific investigation, and have been working to do just that in New York ever since.  The Station Open House is our opportunity to show the public some of the current research and outreach that furthers this legacy." The Geneva Experiment Station officially opened its doors in 1882.

   The Open House will include exhibits from the departments of horticultural sciences, entomology, plant pathology, and food science and technology.  Participating partners include the USDA-ARS, the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park, NYS Ag & Markets, the NYS Farm Bureau, the NYS Seed Laboratory, Integrated Pest Management (IPM), the NYS wine industry, the Strong Museum, and others.

   Since becoming part of Cornell in 1923, NYSAES has gained national prominence as a center for research focused on the production, protection, and utilization of fruit and vegetable crops, and has generated many billions of dollars for the New York State economy.  To learn more, visit www.nysaes.cornell.edu.
