Prepare for Envirothon by learning about the basics of soil science!
Participating in Envirothon? Interested in Envirothon? Come and learn about the soils and land use with Northwest Regional Envirothon!
Envirothon is a high school environmental science competition that tests students’ knowledge on Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, Soil, and a yearly current issue – this year’s is Adapting to a Changing Climate.
Taught by current and former National Resource Conservation Service scientists, this workshop will cover the basics of soil morphology and properties. Participants will be able to put their new knowledge to the test to describe and analyze the profile of a soil pit dug on site. This is a great opportunity to get your teams ready for the Regional Envirothon. This event is also open to all students, so if you are unsure about participating in Envirothon and want to know more, think you can benefit from this session for other events, or are simply interested in soil science, you are more than welcome to join us!
The talk will take place at the Mountlake Terrace Library. We will be going outdoors to dig a soil pit, so dress for the weather!
