Volunteer Opportunity at Chemekta Community College in Salem, OR

My name’s Angie Mestas and I’ll be teaching soil science at Chemeketa Community College this fall term. We’ll be talking about physical/chemical/biological properties of soils as well as soil management and conservation. Do you have time to come in for a guest lecture or lead a field trip? I’m looking for someone to talk about agricultural or rangeland soil.
The class runs from Sept 24- Dec 5 Tuesdays: 1:30 to 2:50 pm and Thursdays 1:30-5:50 pm.
Thanks so much for your help!
Angie,, 971-255-9633
