About University of Minnesota North Central Research and Outreach

The University of Minnesota North Central Research and Outreach Center (NCROC) in Grand Rapids opened its doors in 1896. As we represent the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, NCROC strives to insure a sustainable way of life in addressing both the current and changing values of our classic “woods and water” landscape that includes both climate change and the northern migration of agriculture. This along with the unique soil, climate, social, and economic environment in Northern Minnesota provide many research and outreach opportunities.
The unique strength of the NCROC is characterized by the diversity of its research programs led by faculty and staff who focus on areas of Agronomy, Animal Science, Forest Biology and Genetics, Forest Management and Economics, Horticulture, Tourism and Travel, and Wild Rice.

Would you like to add your business or organization to

Whether you represent a business or a community organization such as a church, school, museum, city government, etc., we invite you to create an account and get a free listing in our online business directory. There is no charge to create an account and it only takes a few moments of your time.

If you'd like additional exposure for your business or organization, we offer all kinds of options to fit your needs and budget. Do you want to bring more people in to your establishment? Why not consider a coupon or a promotional event? If you just need to keep yourself in the public eye you might want to think about placing an eye-catching full-color ad. You can choose your medium: the website, the mobile app, the weekly newsletter, our popular wall calendar, or any combination of the four.

Did you know that independent studies by the Verafast Corporation repeatedly show that at least 70% of all homeowners who receive our calendar keep and use it all year long? That's a phenomenal retention rate and makes sure that your business or organization is truly being put On Display Every Day.

With your account you'll also have the opportunity to post events that will appear on our website, in our weekly newsletter, and on our mobile app. Please remember that Town Planner is a franchise and all events are subject to approval by the local publisher in your area. As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
