Jim Thayer Soil Science Endowment

Gifts to the Jim Thayer Soil Science Endowmed Fund will provide perpetual support for the Field Studies of Soils in California Ecosystems course, SSC105/205. This three-week long, summer course provides students with a hands-on and in-depth study of the California landscape. It was this experience that led Jim Thayer, BS/'70 and MS/'73, to establish this fund.
