Academic Specialist, Forest Carbon Curriculum
The Forest Carbon and Climate Program aims to increase understanding and implementation of climate-smart forest management, which inextricably links climate change mitigation and adaptation. The program focuses on activities that advance best practice implementation, promote robust and inter-disciplinary understanding of forest benefits and co-benefits, and develop and nurture balanced perspectives that include working forests and forest products as a part of the climate change solution. These objectives are achieved through working with strategic partners to better communicate and bring attention to key topics, create educational content and programming and bridge dialogue gaps on carbon and climate topics related to forests and forested lands.
The program was established to connect professionals, natural resource managers, decision-makers, students and the broader public with the value of forested lands and forest products in addressing climate change. Extensive expertise in forest conservation guides the program’s focus, in addition to local, regional and international relationships with entities engaged in the utilization and protection of forests and related ecosystems.
The Forest Carbon and Climate Program is partnering with the Forest-Climate Working Group to bring a learning series to group members and the public.
“The Washington State New Forestland Preservation Grant Program” is the second in the Forest-Climate Working Group Learning Series.
