Mount Blue State Park Soils and PNR's Workshop

  • Mount Blue State park Center Hill Road Weld, Maine

The Maine Association of Professional Soil Scientists in conjunction with the Maine Association of Wetland Scientists, Maine Association of Site Evaluators and Soil Science Society of Northern New England is once again sponsoring a late summer workshop focusing on soils and natural resources. This year, the workshop will be held on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at Mt. Blue State Park in the western Maine town of Weld, from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm. As in the past, this workshop will combine soil evaluation with natural resource identification and regulation issues. Natural resource/soil  sites to be included in the workshop are: a potential wetland in glacial till soils on a 20% slope; sandy spodosol soils (soils with a gray leached Albic horizon directly underlain by a red to black horizon of accumulation); glacial till spodosol soils; pit and mound topography soils pits on a long sloping glacial till site that are influenced by oxygenated groundwater; a stream/wetland complex and a stream/wetland/vernal pool complex in the shoreland zone of Webb Lake that will have all kinds of shoreland and LUPC zoning issues as well as a few involving NRPA.
