Destination Ag is an agriculture and natural resources education program provided by ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture. The goal of the program is to increase awareness of how agriculture and natural resources affect consumers’ daily lives. Participants gain further understanding of where their food, fiber, and shelter comes from.
Destination Ag began as a partnership between ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture and the Harley Langdale Jr., Foundation in the summer of 2016. With the generous donation from the Harley Langdale Jr., Foundation, Destination Ag provides free programming for thousands of elementary children from local communities.
The program saw over 12,000 first through fourth grade students during the 2019-2020 school year from 10 surrounding school districts. Learn more about the program by visiting their website https://gma.abac.edu/education/destination-ag/.
