This presentation is part of the opening session of a three-day event hosted by CSU Chico, the California NCSS (National Cooperative Soil Survey) Planning Meeting. The first day included presentations on survey projects, the second day featured field tours, and the gathering ended with the Region 6 Collegiate Soil Judging competition. In this recording, the speakers provide a preview of activities and basic information about the NCSS, a soil survey program that dates all the way back to 1896. The mission of the NCSS Strategic Plan is to provide knowledge about soils and ecosystems for resource management.
