Getting Into the Weeds – Sorting Out the Details of Soil Conditions & Management Considerations

March 14, 2023

11:00 am – 1:15 pm
Location: Online

This class is part of a six part series, Getting Down to Earth: Understanding soils for ecosystem resilience and repair. Building up from the previous classes, we will review soil disturbance and resulting stewardship challenges commonly encountered at restoration sites such as former agricultural land, urban fill, construction sites, brownfields, and degraded natural areas. We will review how to assess for common soil disturbances as well as historical and ecological site conditions for their soil management plans. Reasons and resources will be reviewed for more technical soil testing through consultants and labs.

Taught by Rodney Pond and Christina Pfeiffer
