Thanks to Morgan Okke, Owen Gustafson, Jalen Lane, Keenan Pierce, Colbey Steeke, and Taylyn Koenig for helping out with Jefferson Mini Lessons today! We had 22 kids (3rd, 4th, and 5th graders) join us this morning to learn about agriculture and have a bit of fun in the arena roping, running the barrels, and visiting the goats! We sincerely appreciate these collegiate volunteers for helping make this visit a success!

Want to learn about another culture? Want to learn about the coffee you drink and the chocolate you eat (plus much more)? Do you have a sense of adventure?

Learn about agriculture, biodiversity, and eco-tourism! Experience the beauty and culture of Costa Rica from May 19-31, 2020!

The photo shows more detailed information on the study tour itinerary to Costa Rica in May 2020. It is an excellent opportunity to travel with friends and experience the excitement and enrichment of traveling abroad. Dr. King has been to six different countries and one of them was Costa Rica! He said Costa Rica was his favorite to visit – the people are nice, the country is beautiful, and there is so much to see in terms of agriculture and landscape! He also said if you like good food and good coffee, Costa Rica gets a thumbs up!
