Close Encounters With Agriculture
The most important educational activity the MSCD does during the year is Close Encounters with Agriculture. This three-week program involves about 2,500 fourth grade students from across the County and represents a comprehensive agriculture experience for these young people. Close Encounters is done in cooperation with the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension - Montgomery County and other agricultural agencies and groups.
The 2020 program dates will be announced mid-2020.
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who put together the 2019 program!
