Agricenter International is the foremost educational venue for formal and informal learning about agriculture, forestry, and natural resources. In a time when many children think their food and clothes come from the store, it is important to educate them about the natural environment. Agricenter’s educators offer enrichment classes that focus on science, technology and the environment. The programs are STEM focused and follow state curriculum standards.  For schools who need assistance, transportation scholarships are available. Our vision is to continue providing this quality education, we can do this with your support.

Agricenter International operates under a conservation easement.  Each fall, after the Corn Maze is closed, Agricenter and their tenant, Ducks Unlimited, partner to flood the corn field to provide waterfowl habitat to migratory birds.  The field can be seen from the Observation Tower adjacent to Germantown Parkway.  The ADA accessible tower is open to the public year-round and equipped with free high-powered binoculars.
