Parlier High School students explore applied agriculture and natural resources research careers by visiting Kearney in April.

About 35 Parlier High School students came to Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center (KARE) not knowing much about ANR or what to expect. They started the day with an entomology workshop conducted by Julie Sievert, a staff research associate at KARE. A tour of research plots demonstrated many different types of disciplines and strategies to research and extend science-based knowledge to address important agricultural and natural resources issues. During lunch, most of the students wanted to return to the world of entomology. As the students left, they commented on how this was a fantastic field trip and that they never knew how interesting and fulfilling applied Ag and natural resources research could be.

Parlier High School students engaged in an entomology workshop at KARE.

Many of the Parlier High School students returned to further explore entomology on their own during lunch.
