Carbon Cycle Institute Presents: Scientific Overview of Agricultural Carbon Research & the Implications for Climate

In response to the rapid pace of global climate change, the work of the Marin Carbon Project and the Carbon Cycle Institute has focused on measuring the effects of rangeland management practices and their implications for carbon sequestration into permanent soil carbon pools. The potential for rangelands to function as carbon sinks alters the carbon impacts of the materials produced on these working landscapes-- and their subsequent footprint shows us that 'climate beneficial' material culture has the potential to mitigate the damaging effects of current human consumption practices. Through applied research, demonstration, and implementation the team has produced a body of research that will be explained and shared at this month's webinar.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.

Presenters include:
  • John Wick, Marin Carbon Project Founding Director
  • Jeff Creque, Marin Carbon Project co-founder and Carbon Cycle Institute Director
  • Rebecca Burgess, Fibershed Executive Director

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
