WHAT: Carbon Forest in Maine- Carbon Work-Study
WHEN: August 18th 1:30-3:00PM
WHERE: Forest Center at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park
Presenter: David Publicover,
Senior Staff Scientist/Assistant Research Director with the Appalachian Mountain
The Appalachian Mountain Club recently set aside 10,000 acres of forest land in Maine in a 100 year management plan for carbon storage and sequestration. The carbon credits will be sold in the Californian Compliance Market earning money for continued conservation efforts in Maine. The management plan equates to “100,000 tons of atmospheric carbon reductions, or the equivalent of taking 21,000 gasoline-powered cars off the road.”- Article. Join us to learn more about this project and how lessons learned from this management plan can be applied locally.
This is the final presentation as part of our eight-month long work-study discussion series focused on building communal support and understanding of the different aspects of not only why we should manage our forests but why and how we can manage them for carbon storage and sequestration. Free and open to everyone.
