The fourth Annual Lake County Ag & Natural Resources Day will be held at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, May 4.
A committee of the Lake County Fair Foundation is hard at work to bring the event’s agricultural and natural resource learning experiences back to Lake County students, in-person.
The event was canceled in both 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
New this year is a second opportunity, Ag & Natural Resources Career Day, which will take place the following week, on Wednesday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to noon.
At the career day event, high school students can learn from local farmers, businesses and educational trade schools about possible career paths. The goal is to showcase the many opportunities in the agriculture and natural resource industries that are located in Lake County.
If you or someone you know would like to support these important events, sponsorship packages are available through the Lake County Fair Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Funds will be used to cover event costs and fund transportation for schools which could otherwise not attend.
Community members, businesses, and service clubs can support the event through sponsorships, exhibits, demonstrations and volunteering efforts.
Preregistration is required and must be submitted by April 8.
Educators should communicate with school administrators to coordinate attendance to either event.
