EAST LANSING, Mich.—Families can celebrate the arrival of spring
with a visit to Small Animals Day slated for Saturday, April 17, on the
Michigan State University (MSU) campus.
The Michigan State University Pavilion will be buzzing with activities that educate visitors about agriculture and natural resources through hands-on exhibits and bus rides to the MSU Farms. Baby animals will be on exhibit and children will have the opportunity to milk a cow. The event is sponsored by the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) and is organized through the CANR Student Senate.
Admission to the event costs $2 per person and the event is open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Visitors should park at the Commuter Lot located on the northwest corner of Farm Lane and Mt. Hope and ride the free CATA buses to the MSU Pavilion and MSU Farms.
“Small Animals Day is a great opportunity for all to experience a day on the farm. We offer a wide range of activities that are both educational and fun. Small Animals Day offers family time at a great value,” said Danielle Martinez, event coordinator, and member of the CANR Student Senate.
Events include face painting, a sheep dog demonstration, bus rides to the MSU Horse Farm and the MSU Poultry Farm and educational booths sponsored by MSU student organizations.
