Soils of the Georgia Piedmont and Beyond
March 23, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Mac Callaham, research ecologist, U.S. Forest Service
In this course, we will discuss the history of Georgia Piedmont soils, the history of public land in Georgia, and general soil ecology and biology. What is soil? What factors affect soil properties? These are a couple of the questions we will address in this class, which will include a lecture as well as a lab portion where we will explore soil in nature. Prepare to get a little dirty and learn about the fascinating, mysterious world beneath your feet.
This class is an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants.
