50th Anniversary

November 2, 2003 - November 2, 2004.

November 2, 2003, marks the 50th Anniversary of the establishment of the Agricultural Research Service. Although the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) can trace its heritage back to the early 19th Century seed collection efforts of the U.S. Patent Office, as an agency ARS is only 50 years old.

Various events will unfold throughout the year following a kick-off celebration on November 3, 2003. On that day, ARS locations will mark the 50th Anniversary with local events.

This website is designed to convey information about the ARS anniversary and provide resources for use throughout the year.

Come back and check the site frequently as events unfold!
