Register

December 2, 2020
6:00 – 7:15 p.m. CT

Join us for a virtual panel discussion about the science and management of carbon sequestration on private lands! New policies are helping landowners earn money by capturing carbon in woodlands, grasslands, and agricultural soils. Yet carbon trading may not be the best option in all contexts, and navigating the regulations required for participation can be a daunting task.

In this panel discussion, get an introduction to the science and logistics of carbon sequestration on private lands from scientists, industry leaders, carbon market participants, and critics.

Our panelists include:

Angela & Anthony Waupochick, Menominee Forest Managers
Charlie Mitchell, Journalist and Organizer at the Wisconsin Farmers Union
Gregg Sandford, PhD, Research Scientist in the UW-Madison Agronomy Department
Jeff Cole, Credit Sales at Carbon Forest Works
Jonathan Shears, Family Forest Carbon Program and American Forest Foundation
Josh Parrish, Director of the American Forest Carbon Initiative for The Nature Conservancy
Jon Stewart, an Oregon landowner working with Forest Carbon Works
Tim Leiby, Landowner and Early Participant in Carbon Markets

Moderated by:
Kylie Clay, Forest Carbon and Climate Program, Michigan State University

Organized by:
Tyler Byrnes, Anna George, Ben Iuliano, Gabriela Motta, Ben Nickley, Niko Tutland, Tierney Bocsi, and Adena Rissman, in partnership with the UW Madison Nelson Institute of Environmental Studies and the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology.
