Arkansas Soil & Water Virtual Field Trip Series
The Soil & Water Conservation Virtual Field Trips (VFTs) Series focuses on the conservation benefits our researchers have developed with respect to water quality, irrigation water use, climate change, soil health, profitability and sustainability through their partnership with selected farms, including some farmers involved in the Arkansas Discovery Farms Program.
The goal of these virtual field trips was to educate a statewide network of participants through a series of no-cost virtual research-based, interactive demonstrations and educational experiences.
The live series has ended, however video recordings and lesson plans are still available.

- Anyone Interested in Soil and Water Conservation

Don't miss out on our 7E and GRC-3D lesson guides for each virtual field trip recording. Our VFT lesson guides meet the Arkansas Department of Education's Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) framework.
This program was funded by The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources and Conservation Service (NRCS) to integrate the efforts of the Arkansas Discovery Farms and the Arkansas Soil Health Alliance.
