Webinar: Capturing Carbon with Trees

September 18 @ 12:30 pm EDT - 1:30 pm EDT
Free - $10

Dr. Christopher Woodall will look at how forested rural area carbon assessment is done in the US. He will discuss how these assessments suggest that forests currently offset over 10% of carbon dioxide associated with fossil fuel emissions every year. Because forests and trees in developed landscapes sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide through growth and expansion, their preservation could play an important role in the ability of the US to reach net zero emissions. Christopher Woodall, PhD, is the Project Leader…

Webinar: Landscaping for Plant Diversity

September 26 @ 12:30 pm EDT - 1:30 pm EDT
Free - $10

What is the role of diversity in the garden and what do we gain by increasing diversity in our gardens, fields, and forests? Despite the wealth of native plant species at our fingertips, we rely too heavily on too few species. By using the great diversity of plants that are native to a region, we can beautify the landscape, minimize inputs, support wildlife, and do away with the ecological deserts created in seas of mulch and functionally sterile lawns. Randi…
