Lake Land College is offering three opportunities this summer for educators to learn more about the agricultural industry. Ag Institutes are designed for K-12 educators to learn more about the wide impact agriculture has on our daily lives. Participants will get a chance to gain firsthand knowledge they can share with their students by touring agricultural businesses and farms, meeting with industry professionals, as well as engaging in other hands-on activities. The first portion of Ag Institute will meet June 6-8th from 8AM to 5PM. The second portion will meet June 13-15th from 8AM-5PM. Lunch will be provided for both portions. The third portion of Ag Institute will be a two day intensive institute, which will include an overnight trip to the St. Louis area for a tour of the Missouri Botanical Gardens, local greenhouses, tours of Monsanto, Purina Mills, as well as a visit to the Lock Dam and Danforth Center. Materials, transportation, lunch, and entrance fees will be provided, with hotel and evening meals provided by the participants.
