tehamacountyhistory.org (Public Domain)On Friday, April 3rd,  there will be a Field Tour via bus to look at soils, geomorphology, and wetlands on the Pleistocene terraces in relation to the F8 Hydric Soil Indicators and WOTUS as the 2015 regulations have been revised by the EPA and ACOE. This will be an excellent opportunity to identify problematic field indicators and evaluate wetlands under revised federal standards. Soil scientists, biologists, wetland experts, agency regulators, land owners and other interest groups are encouraged to attend. This educational and informative exercise will take place at Coyote Creek Conservation Area managed by Red Bluff Farms.
