Digging Into the Roots of Soil
Students will explore the relationship between plant communities and the soils they grow in. We will sample and compare soils from different areas on the Shaw Woods property and discuss how the variations in the soils determine what plants can grow in them. Students will get to try their hand at making their own soil samples and explore the role of soils in filtering and storing groundwater.
