Carbon Sequestration Webinars

In September and October, CNRAC hosted two webinars focused on carbon sequestration, and how storing carbon both below ground in geologic formations and above ground in plants and trees will be a necessary tool in helping to mitigate climate change. 

More than 150 tuned in to the webinars to hear geologic and forestry experts discuss work being done to study and advance the work. 

Part 1 of the webinar series Below and Above, Storing Carbon in the Pennsylvania Landscape is now posted.  Part 2 will be posted in the coming weeks.
