UI Plans Twilight Tour in Kimberly
KIMBERLY, Idaho (KLIX) – You’ll look at soil with a new perspective once you attend the Twilight Tour that the University of Idaho is planning at its agriculture center in Kimberly.
The event, which includes a catered dinner and activities, takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. July 20. A similar event was held in 2014 and drew more than 500 visitors, according to information from the university.
“The free field day functions as a science fair for children and adults who live nearby and for those who work in agriculture,” the news release reads. “The tour illustrates the range of research conducted by College of Agricultural and Life Sciences faculty and staff.”
The free event alternates between the Aberdeen Research and Extension Center and Kimberly.
“Soil scientists will dig a soil pit at the research center and invite visitors to learn more about the soil that sustains agriculture and Idaho’s economy.”
UII President Chuck Staben and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Dean Michael Parrella are scheduled to attend.
