New Jersey Outdoors: Visit WildNewJersey.tv at Rutgers' Ag Field Day
The Ecology and Evolution Graduate Student Association will be leading tours throughout Helyar Woods and Rutgers Gardens during the day. Helyar Woods can be a great spot during migration, and there are sure to be a number of warblers and other songbirds flitting about.

If you ask the loyalists on the Cook and Douglass campuses what April 24th is called, they'll emphatically tell you it's "Ag Field Day". The annual event in New Brunswick has now been transformed into the broader, University-wide "Rutgers Day", but on the fields and farms of Cook/Douglass, they're hanging onto the 104-year old moniker. Throughout the day there will be various tours, demonstrations, and lectures all over campus. On the big lawn on Cook/Douglass, the NJ Folk Festival will be held with live music, craft tents, artists, and food trucks. WildNewJersey.tv will have a table set up as well, so be sure to come check us out!
