Maryland SoccerPlex Teams with Grass Roots for Interactive Outdoor Exhibit
The Maryland SoccerPlex and Grass Roots, a cooperative arrangement between the United States Department of Agriculture and the National Turfgrass Federation, began an ambitious partnership in 2015 to create an interactive sport field and lawn exhibit at the Maryland SoccerPlex. It will be just the second joint venture of this type by Grass Roots. The first opened one at the U.S. National Arboretum in the fall of 2014.
The exhibit’s home is situated in front of the ticket booth on the south lawn of Maureen Hendricks Field, the SoccerPlex’s stadium field. There will be a formal grand opening on Wednesday, May 3 at 10:00 am followed by a public grand opening that following Saturday, May 6. At the public opening visitors will be able to walk through the exhibit and also ask any lawn-care related questions to our panel of experts from the Maryland SoccerPlex, the National Turfgrass Federation and the U.S. National Arboretum.
“We are honored to be able to partner in the Grass Roots Initiative said Maryland SoccerPlex Executive Director Trish Heffelfinger. “
