Soil Testing & Microscope Analysis Workshop at Clear Creek – AT

February 28 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Learn how to create a plan for soil restoration. We will first walk the Prairie and discuss the 4 pillars of restoration; slowing water down, removing compaction, adding organic matter and evaluating microorganisms. On our walk we will identify different types of erosion, test for compaction, and sample the soil for analysis back at the center. You will learn how to use a basic microscope, make sample dilutions and scan the slide to determine the abundance or lack of bacteria, fungal and other microbiology which may indicate a lack of oxygen in the soil. We will compare the Clear Creek soil to composted soil. There will be 5 microscopes set up and we will work in teams of 3. Workshop is limited to 15.
