Cultivated DSA - Olds College Student Project

Olds College students perform Detailed Site Assessments (DSA) for reclamation certificates from start to finish in mock cultivated DSA scenarios.

Olds College students perform Detailed Site Assessments (DSA) for reclamation certificates from start to finish in mock cultivated DSA scenarios. Landscape is assessed for contour, erosion and slumping on a macro, meso and micro scale. Soil depth, texture, structure, consistency, colour, and stoniness are determined and recorded for both topsoil and subsoil. Plant health, cover, density, height and weeds are measured and recorded. Students graduate as reclamation practitioners ready for many entry level jobs.

This project is Academics/student led.
