RESOLUTION 09-01

SUPPORTING AN AGRICULTURAL, FORESTRY & ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE CENTER

(Sponsored by the Northland Pioneer Grange No.1)

             WHEREAS, the Alaska Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station (AFES) is administered by the University of Alaska Fairbanks; and

             WHEREAS, the station includes the Fairbanks Experiment Farm and the Matanuska Experiment Farm; and

             WHEREAS, the Fairbanks Experiment Farm is adjacent to the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus with several large auditoriums and meeting halls; and

             WHEREAS, the Matanuska Experiment Farm is adjacent to the Matanuska-Susitna College both of which lack a large conference center; and

             WHEREAS, the Matanuska Experiment Farm encompasses approximately 1000 acres, and is at the heart of Alaska’s population center with the cities of Anchorage, Palmer, Wasilla and Houston within a 35 mile radius; and

             WHEREAS, many annual agricultural, forestry and environmental conferences and conventions that originate in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley must be held in Anchorage which adds to higher traffic congestion, increased fuel consumption and does not allow for field trips to view crops, dairies, timber, farming techniques and research products; and

             WHEREAS, the Grange supports development at the Matanuska Experiment Station that supports agricultural, forestry and environmental study; therefore be it

             RESOLVED, that the Alaska State Grange supports the establishment of an Agricultural, Forestry and Environmental Conference Center at the Matanuska Experiment Farm.
