The Idea

You’re probably asking, “so what’s the idea with this website?” Well, here it is:

Healthy soil, clean water and sound wetlands are all crucial components of well-functioning ecosystems and agricultural landscapes all over our planet. My name is Colby and I am an assistant professor of soil science at Kansas State University. My intention for this website is to communicate soil, water, and wetland science to a general audience in a way that makes science fun and easy to understand. Blog posts will include such topics as soil science in the news; my perspectives on conservation-related policy; fun stories; resources for students, parents, and educators; updates on my research; and more. My first blog post, found here, explains who I am and what my intentions are for Colby Digs Soil. This website was unfortunately neglected for a few years, but I’m working on getting caught back up on blog posts and site updates in 2020.

Thanks for stopping by!
