Save the date! You won’t want to miss Who Speaks for the Trees? – How Forests that Store Carbon can Help Save the Planet, a free webinar presented by the West Virginia Center on Climate Change on Friday, July 29th.
Over the past four decades, forests have moderated climate change by absorbing about one-quarter of the carbon emitted by human activities. Forests are a vital part of the carbon cycle, storing and releasing this element in a dynamic process of growth, decay, disturbance and renewal. At this free program you can learn what forest management strategies are most successful in solving the climate crisis – and why!
