Certificate in Native Plants - Soils & Water 


This course is a CORE course and provides 6 hours toward the completion of the Certificate in Native Plants program.

This class will focus on how soil and water interactions lay the foundation for supporting a functional, healthy landscape. We will frame our conversation around the five soil forming factors of parent material, climate, biota, topography, and time, and take a look at how each of these is at work in our landscape. We will use technology tools but also simply get our hands dirty to help uncover information that will help in management decisions.

Instructor:  Andrea Ludwig, PhD
