Understanding soils is critical to conservation and land use planning that supports sustainable agriculture, forestry and greener urban, suburban and rural communities. If you know your soils, you know and can better manage your land.

This one-day conference will focus on soil information resources available through the USDA Soil Survey. We’ll provide updates on recent changes to the data and help you understand how to use it. The day will include classroom workshops and field demonstrations.

Who should attend? Natural resource management and environmental protection professionals; agricultural commission and conservation commission members; farmers and other land owners and managers will all benefit from this worthwhile event!

Sponsored by: the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Massachusetts Association of Conservation Districts and the Worcester County Conservation District.
