Citrus Youth Day was created to help teach students about the importance of citrus and agriculture as careers, as well as in the community.
Jamie Burrow, Extension program manager for the University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Citrus Research and Education Center, says there will be five stations for the kids during the Citrus Youth Day event. The stations will include exhibitors, plant pathology, horticulture, entomology and general citrus.
“We just want to get them to know about citrus and the different careers they can do not only in citrus, but in agriculture,” says Burrow.
According to Burrow, someone from the University of Florida will speak on possible degrees in agriculture.
The Citrus Youth Day will be held on June 22 at the Citrus Research and Education Center. The event is for students 8 to 18 years old.
