Soil Investigatons (gr. 1-3, outreach)

Observe native wildlife that directly depend on soil for food and shelter. Investigate your schoolyard or a nearby habitat to collect different soil types and compare their properties as you learn how healthy soil supports a

healthy planet and climate.

Please note this can be either an in-classroom program with live native wildlife or outdoor schoolyard investigation or combination of both.
