Soils Seminar


Every year MOWA partners with the University of Minnesota to put on a soil class to help professionals earn Soils CEs for their continuing education requirements. The class moves around the state so professionals can see the varying soil types that our industry works in.

Our 2024 Soils Class will be in Grand Rapids. We thank Kurt Christopherson for providing a site for this class.  The class will be located at 20610 Stony Point, Grand Rapids.

MPCA has approved the course for 6 Soils continuing education credits.
