This event is a follow up to the Healthy Soils - Healthy Woodlots webinar as part of MTRI's "Sit Back Seminar" Series.
Healthy soils are the foundation of healthy forests. The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources and Renewables is collaborating on two new projects with researchers at the Halifax and Truro campuses of Dalhousie University to learn more about nutrients and organisms in forested soils across the province. Join soil experts from across the province and be prepared to get your hands dirty as we explore what makes healthy forest soil, how soil types differ in different forest stand types, how they may impact carbon storage, climate change resilience and stream water quality, and how to manage for healthy soils.
