The United Nations has recognized 2015 as the International Year of Soils, yet how many of us appreciate the fact that we can’t eat, breathe, drink, or maintain healthy communities without good soil. Let’s talk dirty and explore the diverse and complex world of soil as well as how local scientists manage soil systems to maintain ecosystem services. Come learn how Chicago scientists are incorporating soil organisms into green roofs to manage storm water, cool neighborhoods, and reduce energy costs. Also, learn what you can do to improve soil health in your own backyard and beyond.
