Agriculture & Natural Resources
The Agriculture and Natural Resources sector is designed to provide a foundation in agriculture for all agriculture students in California.

The pathways emphasize real-world, occupationally relevant experiences for students in Merced Union High School District. Integral components of classroom and laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural experience projects, and leadership and interpersonal skills development prepare students for continued training, advanced educational opportunities, and entry to a career.
