Description

This class, designed for professionals working in ecological restoration, will provide an overview of natural soil development processes, providing a baseline for understanding soil hydrology and nutrient cycling. Participants will learn how to assess soil quality in the field and through lab work, and will review how soil hydrology works at a micro and macro-scale – essential to understanding when and how to irrigate, and how to optimize soil moisture holding capacity and critical drainage function. Information presented will help you improve site restoration prospects by understanding a local soil’s more limiting characteristics, and to optimize management decisions by understanding that one size does not fit all when it comes to growing plants and creating habitat in disturbed or impacted sites. Attendees are invited to let us know in advance if there are particular soils and hydrology issues that they would like to see addressed.

Taught by Lisa Palazzi, Certified Professional Soil Scientist, Certified Professional Wetland Scientist

Cost: $100 (lunch included)
