Soil 101: Introduction
to Soil – Online!

Understanding soil is a basic skill needed by anyone interested in agriculture, environmental science, gardening, natural resource management, and water quality. Traditionally, to gain that skill, a person has had to pay college tuition and spend long hours in a classroom. Now, with the power of the internet at your fingertips, the NC Cooperative Extension Service is bringing a first class Introduction to Soil education to your office, dining room table, or local coffee shop. Learn more about this open online course at http://go.ncsu.edu/introduction-to-soil

North Carolina Big
Sweep / International Coastal Cleanup

Did you know that a cigarette filter flicked out the window can last five years in the environment and the plastic bag blown out of the back of a truck can last 20 years? Last year, Big Sweep volunteers retrieved everything from plastic bags and cigarette filters to bowling balls and wheelchairs. All told, volunteers retrieved the equivalent of almost 1,000 football fields five fee deep deep in litter. With the 2012 North Carolina Big Sweep just around the corner, it's time to reserve your cleanup site. The Carteret County Big Sweep will be held at any location, any time and any date convenient for your group between September 10 and October 20. Don't have a group? Feel free to join one of the other teams at various locations including, Paul Grayden Bridge, Downtown Beaufort, Rachel Carson Reserve, Morehead City Parks and Rec., Western Park, and more. To volunteer, call Bret Delap at 252-222-6365, or call the NC Big Sweep hotline at 1-800-27-Sweep. To learn more about NC Big Sweep, go to http://www.ncbigsweep.org/
