FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Hundreds of northwest Arkansas high school students are expected
for the 10th annual Environmental and Agricultural Sustainability Field Trip on Sept. 25.
The tour is being held at the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture’s
Agricultural Research Station in Fayetteville. It’s hosted by the Crop, Soil, and
Environmental Sciences Department of the Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and
Life Sciences. The rain date is Oct. 2.
“Over the last decade, we’ve introduced thousands of high school students to the impact
of environmental and agricultural practices on one another. In CSES, we are educating
student to understand these issues and equipping them to solve problems that may arise
in the future,” said Holly Yeatman, student recruiter for the department. “It’s always
gratifying when a new freshman in the Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences Department
tells me they became interested in our program because of what they learned on this
Natalie Olivieri, Rogers High School AP Environmental Science teacher, told Yeatman
that the field trip “fills a critical need to show students the effects of agriculture
on the environment, the science behind feeding our large population, and the responsibility
we have to find sustainable agricultural practices. In two-and-a-half hours, students
get field exposure to concepts taught in the classroom the entire year. There is no
way to replicate the wealth of knowledge they gain in this short amount of time from
leaders in these fields.”
There will be two tours – one west of Garland Avenue and one east of Garland.
Tour A will include:
Tour B will include:
Earth’s freshwater: A life-giving and limiting resource - Dot Neely, education coordinator,
Beaver Water District
Students are welcome to bring their lunch and eat in the pavilion at Agri Park after
For more information about the tour, contact Holly Yeatman, firstname.lastname@example.org or 479-575-5726.
