Without turfgrass, many activities that support our mental and physical well-being would be much more difficult. Imagine trying to play Frisbee in a forest or walking your dog through a flower garden! Dr. Sara Stricker, communications and outreach coordinator at the Guelph Turfgrass Institute, reminds us of different ways grass helps us enjoy an active lifestyle.
Turfgrass and lawns sometimes get a bad reputation, but did you know a well-maintained stand of turf has a plethora of environmental benefits? Learn how turfgrass helps combat climate change from University of Guelph associate professor Katerina Jordan.
The OAC Virtual Facility Tours are intended for high school classes. Once you and your students have finished watching a virtual facility tour, you can request a Q&A with a researcher or expert. Each scheduled virtual Q&A session will include a short presentation on the University of Guelph’s programs that relate to the subject area of choice, followed by a question-and-answer period with the facility expert. It is recommended to prepare questions for the expert ahead of the scheduled session.
