A tractor-driven wagon ride will be available for non-walkers. Field tours will conclude at 6 p.m. Visitors are invited to stay for a barbecue in the Center’s Auditorium. Enjoy a locally prepared meal and connect with others in the agricultural community. WSU Mount Vernon NWREC is located at 16650 State Route 536, Mount Vernon.
