Please join Dean Dillard and the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CA&ES) to celebrate the impact of research funded by the Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) and learn about the specific contributions of CA&ES faculty members who receive AES funding. This is also a chance to learn more about the Agricultural Experiment Station and how this public funding supports the college and contributes to research efforts throughout California.

The Symposium will feature four themes of importance to California and highlight the work of various panelists on air, water, healthy foods and communities, and working lands and people. Attendees will hear from speakers including Secretary Karen Ross and faculty from across the college. The program will offer several opportunities to network with researchers and colleagues.
