Did you ever wonder how tillage systems affect how quickly water drains to tile lines? We will be hooking up an air compressor and smoke bombing tile drainage systems at locations in Wisconsin to show how this method can be used to find broken tile, locate tile lines, and evaluate soil health....

How did our typical conservation practices fare in a 100+ year flood? Hosted by LCD/SWCD staff in the hardest hit areas of Sauk County, this one-day field session will take students on a tour of a number of cropland, forested and pasture sites, where you will be able to view firsthand how our...

This field training builds on the principals in the introductory course. The day will be spent in the field, examining soil health from the root zone level. Students will have the opportunity to work with the soil health toolkit tools in a variety of farming systems (severely compacted...

This in-person course introduces the RUSLE 2 soil loss model, how it works, and the data necessary to run the program. The full-day version includes field training on shooting slopes and determining slope length. RUSLE2 is an advanced, user-friendly software model that predicts long-term,...

This blended intermediate-level course begins with an online component and concludes with a one day, in-person workshop with lunch provided.

Students will focus on the NRCS environmental evaluation process to assess both the existing resource condition of a site and the impacts of the...
