USGA Summary Points:A second 'Grass Roots' site, located at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds, MD opened in November 2016. A USDA grant, along with donated products and services by the turf industry funded the construction. The Arboretum 'Grass Roots' exhibit hosted an estimated 30,000 visitors in 2017. The 'Grass Roots' website (www.usna.usda.gov/Education/turfgrass.html) complements the educational concepts in the exhibit and contains information about the benefits of turfgrass, basic lawn care information, and links to each states turfgrass extension education website. Coordinator Geoff Rinehart conducted four lawn care workshops and hosted tours for several groups visiting the exhibit. 'Grass Roots' hosted a regional STMA committee meeting in February, a regional turfgrass phytobiome research meeting in March, a stop on the International Turfgrass Research Conference tour in July, and a national-level USDA turfgrass summit in September. Two new display features were added in 2017: An interpretive banner communicating ongoing Danthonia research plots and the addition of a turf module containing TifTufTM bermudagrass on a major pedestrian thoroughfare overlooking the exhibit.
