AgTivity Barn at the Fort Bend County Fair
Fort Bend County’s Fair is the annual site of the Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service’s AgTivity Barn. Each year hundreds of children take school fields trips to see the booths in the AgTivity Barn. As its name implies it is about things agricultural…..But just because it’s agricultural doesn’t mean there’s no nature out on the farm.
Each year the Coastal Prairie Chapter puts together a booth based on a specific Texas Nature Topic. It might be about mammals or insects or birds or even snakes!
This year we will be talking about our skulls and pelts!
