ANR 100th Anniversary -Tehama Open House
May 8th ---a day we celebrated ANR's 100th Anniversary with an "Open House" , enjoying a great turn out here at the Cooperative Extension office. Displays about each program, with the Farm Advisor's talking about their programs and research projects, as well as answering questions. Everyone was given the opportunity to "Be a Scientist for the Day" with a "Garden Walk" through the Tehama Probation Collaborative Garden next door, observing and counting pollinators. Bees, beetles, lady bugs, butterflies and birds were all observed and the counts entered into a statewide research data base, with other "Be a Scientist for the Day" observers. The nutrition educator spent the day at Richfield School helping the youth plant special UC carrot seed packages, as well as other vegetable seeds in the school garden. Refreshments were enjoyed along with a "Locally grown" table featuring walnuts, almonds, prunes, olives, and olive oils, our county's big agricultural commodities. Everyone was given a mug, hat and buttons as a "thank you" for supporting our office and programs.
The University of California's Ag ad Natural Resources division is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. On May 8th 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the Smith-Lever Act, which created Cooperative Extension to help farmers, homemakers, and youth apply the latest university research to improve their lives. Tehama Cooperative Extension office will be celebrating its 100th anniversary 2018!! We will be celebrating our long standing partnership between the University of California, Tehama County, and the local community!!
