Description

Important Registration Information

  • The LSU AgCenter would like to invite 3rd grade classes to attend and experience the 2018 AgMagic Cenla at the State Evacuation Shelter on Hwy 71 South, Alexandria. We are very excited about offering this program to your students for this year. Students attending the event will participate in five interactive stations where they will learn more about the wide world of agriculture. The five stations include Horticulture, Forestry, Nutrition and Healthy Living, 4-H, and Animal Science.
    Please Note: When registering your students, please select the number of students attending 2018 AgMagic Cenla. Teachers and chaperones do not need to be included in this number. There are four group slots for each time and you can only register 30 students per group slot. If you have more than 30 students attending, please register the remaining students for the next available group slot(s) for that same time. Note: you must select the number of tickets for the number of students attending and not the number of classrooms attending. The final station (Animal Science) does not have a time restriction and groups may take their time at the mini-farm.

  • Ticket sales end October, 31, 2018 @ 7:00PM

About AgMagic

Mark your calendars and join us at AgMagic for this one-of-a-kind event at the LSU Alexandria, State Evacuation Shelter.

Do you think food, clothing, lumber and other products only come from a store? Come to AgMagic and see and learn where your food and fiber really comes from! The LSU AgCenter's evacuation shelter will be transformed this fall to show "AgMagic", which will take children and adults through a journey of Louisiana agriculture and economically beneficial commodities they use every day.

The AgMagic experience will be an interactive, visually stimulating environment that will link 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 will be displayed in various stages of development, and the importance of interaction between agriculture, the environment, and society at large will be highlighted.

Attention Third Grade School Classroom Teachers: This year, Agricultural Awareness lessons and worksheets are available to your classroom to introduce and reinforce the concepts shared during the interactive AgMagic experience. If you are interested in receiving these lessons, please make sure to mark YES on your order form when asked.

AgMagic is a free event!
