The Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station and Auburn University’s College of Agriculture put on the Ag Discovery Adventure at the E.V. Smith Research Center in Shorter, September 28 – 30, 2012. In attendance was Glen Zorn with his grandson Curt of Opp and Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School 3rd grader, Will Driver, grandson of Ginger Austin. At the Ag Discovery Adventure the young boys were taken around the research center and shown the modern innovation and practices in Alabama agriculture while also getting to enjoy a corn maze and hay rides around the farm. While there they also had a chance to meet Dean Batchelor, the Dean of the College of Agriculture, and even had a chance to stop and take a photo. The demonstrations at the Ag Discovery Adventure  were used to open the eyes of these young boys to the world of agriculture and the usefulness and practicality of it in our everyday lives.
