Calgary's best field trip is returning April 19-23, 2023!

Agriculture is Canada's leading industry, employing one third of our work force. It is important for children to find out what is happening "out on the farm" and how agriculture impacts our daily lives. The displays and interactive activities, hosted by industry organizations and volunteers, are designed to help children learn more about Alberta's agricultural and historical legacy.
