Peace River Soils Workshop  

Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30

Rick Kabzems and Sandra Burton are delivering another great soils workshop! Refresh your experience with classification of soils found in the BC Peace River area.  A better understanding of soil processes and how they are used in the Canadian Soil Classification System provide insight and application to a wide variety of land use activities.  Field tests for soil health and soil quality are now commonly used by agronomists and land managers.  We will demonstrate some of these on Peace River soil and discuss applicability and interpretations.

Each day is a separate workshop, participants can register for one or both days. Lunch will be provided. Please list any dietary restrictions when you register.

Dates: Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30 (register for one or both days)

Times: 9am – 5pm each day

Meeting location: to be announced. Likely the Baldonnel and Cecil Lake areas.
