Ranch day 1940 (fp-slider 4)

One of the earliest Jornada education and outreach programs was Ranch Day in October 1940. The participants listened to research updates at field sites and socialized with each other and with scientists at a barbecue hosted by the site. More than 300 people were in attendance at many of the early Ranch Days events (USDA file photos accessible at https://jornada.nmsu.edu). See: Bestelmeyer et al. 2018.
