EARTH WEEK EVENTS

Natural Climate Solutions Webinar

Monday April 19, 7pm via Zoom

Protecting forests and wetlands is an essential strategy in the fight against climate change that has not received the attention it deserves. Trees and wetlands capture and store massive amounts of carbon.  They provide Natural Climate Solutions that help address climate change.  And unlike some strategies for cooling the climate, they don’t require costly and complicated technology.

The webinar will explore the role trees and wetlands have in reducing atmospheric carbon, and compare climate impacts of forest conservation to forest harvesting and wood manufacturing.  We will look at the many additional benefits that Natural Climate Solutions provide such as reduced species loss, flood and forest fire mitigation and increased access to green space. We will wrap up the webinar with Comox Valley Land Trust Executive Director Tim Ennis and Program Manager Erin Nowak who will share info about local Natural Climate Solution projects and programs happening right here in the Comox Valley. The webinar will include a Q & A session.
