Are you rusty? Do you need a refresher on the difference between fine sandy loam and loamy fine sand ? What is the difference between Massive and Single Grain? Are you looking at relic mottles or current redoximorphic features? Does landscape position influence your determinations?

After a long two years of the pandemic come shake off the rust and jump into a test pit. Record your observations and data, interpret the seasonal highwater table. Can sand be poorly drained? See everyone in person!

This workshop will be entirely outdoors, rain or sunshine. Please dress appropriately. Bring color books.

No lunch will be served. Refreshments and snacks will be available.

The presenters at this workshop will be Karen Dudley and Pete Whitcomb.
