Full Title: Considering Carbon: What Your Land Trust Needs to Know
Instructors: Mark Anderson, Taj Schottland, Abigail Weinberg, Kelly Watkinson
Forest protection is one of the best ways to avoid emissions, remove carbon and lessen the impacts of climate change on plant, animal and human communities. Protecting forests is a critical role that land trusts can play in the effort to keep climate change below dangerous thresholds and secure many other values.
Join leaders from The Nature Conservancy, Trust for Public Land and Open Space Institute as they introduce the future of carbon mapping for land protection and a new fund that seeks to maximize the carbon impacts from your conservation projects. You will learn about new data sources and understand the how to use them to prioritize land protection projects, track sequestration, plan for stewardship and communicate the importance of your work to foundations, donors and policy makers. This is the first of a two-part webinar series, the second webinar is tentatively scheduled for spring 2021.
