South Carolina Native Plant Certificate Elective: Soils


Thursday, October 24

This workshop with soils expert Dr. Dara Park, Clemson University, introduces participants to soil fundamentals. Topics covered are texture, structure, soil biology and water movement. We will review the different soils present in South Carolina, and how plant communities and soils influence each other. Participants will learn how to use the Web Soil Survey to identify soil characteristics in their area. Learn how water resources influence soil structure and plant health. We will examine a few soil samples to determine soil texture, pH, and electrical conductivity.
