Penn State Altoona's Agriculture Club and the Collegiate FFA Club will host the annual Ag Awareness Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in and around the Slep Student Center.

This event brings about awareness of agriculture in an informative and recreational way. There will be presentations from students in agricultural classes, live animals, a petting zoo, a tractor display, guests from ag-related fields, and student representatives from University Park ag organizations.

Those who stop by can enjoy some fun activities such as a mechanical bull, pedal tractors, a silent basket auction, and yard games. They can top off the fun with free Creamery ice cream.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a box or two of cereal for donation to a local food pantry.

The event is free and open to the public.
