Webinar Description:

Soil is so much more than what food is grown in, we walk on, or move out of the way to build houses or buildings on. It's complex, life-giving, and is critical for a balanced ecosystem. Our three presenters will provide a background on each (what it is, why it's important, and ideas for classroom activities). We'll wrap-up with additional resources and learn a bit about careers in these three areas. This webinar is presented by members of the Soil Science Society of America.


Duration: 1 hour
Format: Presentations will take place through a Zoom Meeting screen-sharing session. The webinar will be recorded.
