SOILS OF THE MOTHERLODE
DATE: Postponed to Fall 2023.
LEADER: Theresa Kunch, Natural Resources Conservation Service Soil Scientist
DESCRIPTION: We will meet at the USFS building where we will look at a freshly dug pit and discuss soil physical and chemical properties and their effect on plant growth. We will then go into the soil lab (where water and restrooms will be available) and while having a sack lunch we’ll look at samples of soils from different local geologies. After lunch we will carpool to 2 or 3 different roadcuts (exposed soil profiles along the side of a road) where we can use what we learned in the morning to compare some soils of the Motherlode.
