Land use interpretations are based on soil morphology – the physical characteristics and properties of the soil that can be seen or felt. This field-based training will be an opportunity for participants to view and describe Coastal Plain soils of the Delmarva. We will discuss how soil morphology is interpreted and used in evaluations of suitability for various land uses, including agriculture, stormwater, wastewater disposal, and wetlands. Registration includes lunch. CEUs are to be determined (check back for updates).

WHERE: The field day will be held at the same location as the Northeast Regional Collegiate Soil Judging Contest. To keep any ambitious students from getting an inside track, we can’t give the exact location until after the contest is held. For your planning purposes, the training will be on the Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland, within an hour of Easton.  Field day participants will receive an email with the location and directions after October 11th

REGISTRATION: $30 for MAPSS members, $35 for non-members; includes lunch. Fill out and submit registration form below.

Registration is due October 9, 2019. Space is limited, please register early!
