Students pitch in at AgMagic

Several Red River Parish high school 4-H members volunteered their time at the LSU Ag Center’s AgMagic at the Louisiana State Fair. Richard Arnold, RRHS club leader, also attended and pitched in.

The LSU AgCenter’s AgMagic is an interactive, very stimulating, educational experience for young children and their families. Louisiana’s agricultural industry contributes billions of dollars to the state’s economy, employs thousands of people and provides products essential to everyday life. Kids learn about the important connections among agriculture, the environment, and their lives.

The experience links food and fiber products we use every day to the forests, field crops and livestock produced by Louisiana farmers, ranchers and forest landowners. Featured crops are displayed in various stages of development, and the importance of interaction between agriculture, the environment and society at large is highlighted.

This is a free event (with paid admission into the fair) held daily in the Agriculture building during the State Fair which runs through November 12.
