Soils of Alabama Poster


Legacy, Inc., Partners in Environmental Education, along with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Alabama Association of Conservation Districts and the Alabama State Soil and Water Conservation Committee produced a poster entitled the Soils of Alabama.

The poster depicts the diversity in the Alabama terrain by showing the various types of soils found in the state. The poster is broken out into five physiographic provinces: Interior Low Plateaus Province, Appalachian Plateaus Province, Valley and Ridge Province, Piedmont Province, and Coastal Plain Province.

Within each of the five provinces various soil representations are featured along with photos from each region depicting how the soil is used. Each of the soil representations has educational text to help explain and give specific information on the soil types.

The poster was produced by Legacy and a team of volunteers in 2000.
