Soil Hub and the Center for Land Use and Sustainability (CLUS) at Shippensburg University are collaborating to bring in-person soil science training to practicing professionals in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and beyond!
Whether you're an engineer, a wetland scientist, or work in any of the myriad disciplines surrounding land development and environmental permitting, chances are soils play a big role in what you do. Gaining a more informed understanding of the science of soils and how it applies to your job responsibilities can provide the skill set and confidence needed to deliver exceptional products. Whether you have a little or a lot of experience with soils, our classes can help build on that foundation.
