Putting Future Research Experience on Application

Next semester I will be doing an REU at my university in mathematics and combinatorics, the first mathematical one I've done (I did summer research in machine learning and computational linguistics, but I'm not sure that counts for anything in a mathematical application). Will it help my application to put the prospective REU on my application, so that the application committee knows that I will be doing research before graduate school? (My advisor for the REU is writing one of my recommendation letters, if this matters).
