Agriculture and Natural Resources Week at MSU in March


The 98th annual Agriculture and Natural Resources Week (ANR Week), hosted by the Michigan State University (MSU) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), is slated for March 2-9.

The event attracts visitors from throughout the state. ANR Week, which takes place at the nation’s pioneer land-grant college, continues to be one of the largest events of its kind in the nation.

In 1982, Farmers’ Week became Farmers’ Week and Natural Resources Days, and the name was updated again to Agriculture and Natural Resources Week in 1985. The event now hosts more than 75 programs and annual association meetings.

Events of the week include:

  • The Quiet Water Symposium
  • “Grow the Change You Want to See in the World” (Michigan Wildflower Conference)
  • Michigan Organic Reporting Session and Graduate Student Poster Contest
  • Michigan State Rabbit Breeders Association Annual Convention and Show
  • 84th Michigan State FFA Convention
  • Michigan Farmers Market Association Conference
  • Introductory Renewable Energy Seminars
  • Michigan Gladiolus Conference
  • Artisanal Cheesemakers Workshop
  • “Spring into Birding” (beginning birding workshop presented by Michigan Audubon)

The ANR Week Luncheon will recognize individuals for their excellence and support of the CANR and feature presentations by MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon and Fred Poston, dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. For more information, visit http://anrweek.canr.msu.edu/anrweek/anr_week_luncheon.
