Inch of Soil Poster
Get a free Inch of Soil Poster from the USDA. The Inch of Soil poster measures 34×25 inches. International users can also order this by calling the phone number on the website.
Did you know that it takes 500 years for the earth to build one solitary inch of soil? This poster takes readers through all the American historical events that have happened during the building of the last inch of earth.
Soil is important and we must protect it. Much of our food comes from the soil. Animals also depend on it.
To get your free poster, click on “Add to Basket” and then checkout. You will then be asked for a customer ID. If you don’t have one, just ignore this screen and click “next.” Enter your information and place your order. It should come pretty fast. They said it they will ship my order in 5 to 10 days.
Also, you are NOT ordering a box with 175 posters. You are only ordering 1. If you look at the small print, it says that the 175 is just a guide, if you want 2 boxes, you enter 350. So, you are only ordering 1.
UPDATE: I received this high quality poster and it does come very quickly.

Free Celebrate Urban Birds Kit
Get a free “Celebrate Urban Birds!” Kit from Cornell. You will get two free posters, a free sticker, and a pack of bird seeds to feed the wild feathered friends. They also include a data sheet for you to track what birds you see. If you let them know whether you saw the target birds, it will be a boon to their research.
