Todd Ontl, Carbon Stewardship Specialist, U.S. Forest Service


The U.S. Forest Service has developed new guidance on how to provide for increased carbon stewardship and climate resilience across our national forests and grasslands. In this talk, we will first present the USFS’s guiding principles of carbon stewardship. We will then discuss how the Adaptation Workbook can be used to consider climate-informed management of carbon at the scale of individual projects.
