Industry Sector: Agriculture and Natural Resources

FFA students


The Agriculture and Natural Resources sector is designed to provide a foundation in agriculture for all agriculture students in California. Students engage in an instructional program that integrates academic and technical preparation and focuses on career awareness, career exploration, and skill preparation in seven pathways. The pathways emphasize real-world, occupationally relevant experiences of significant scope and depth in Agricultural Business, Agricultural Mechanics, Agri-science, Animal Science, Forestry and Natural Resources, Ornamental Horticulture, and Plant and Soil Science. 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, or entry to a career.  

The Lincoln High School agriculture Program focuses on premier leadership, personal growth, and career success, for all of our students. More than 25% of all students at Lincoln High School are enrolled in at least one agriculture class. Our program features 5 main pathways that students can take courses in. Agriculture Mechanics, Animal Science, Agribusiness, Floral Design, & Sustainable Agriculture. All Students enrolled in agriculture classes become members of the National FFA Organization, the nation’s largest student led youth organization. Students in our program are able to take classes and work at the Lincoln High School farm, which has a complete welding shop, classrooms, animal facilities, and sits on over 400 acres, located just 15 minutes away from the main LHS campus. For more information on our program, please visit our website, and follow us on social media.
