About the Workshop
This immersive workshop will focus on soil basics and soils relationship to landforms and hydrology for practitioners. Course includes an overview of soil types and characteristics, including hydric vs. non-hydric soils, interpreting soil data, and available resources. Building upon this foundation, we will also discuss the relationship between soil and topography, groundwater and surface water movement, prehistoric environments, and how soil impacts site suitability for various uses. Attendees will be in the classroom in the morning followed by hands-on learning in the lab or field in the afternoon. Click here to view the course flyer and to register.
