You’re invited to the 2018 Carbon Friendly Forestry Conference!
Join us this fall for a one-day conference in which we’ll dive into the complex conversations that surround forest carbon sequestration and management practices in the West Coast’s working forests. We aim to bring together diverse thinkers – policy makers, academics, conservationists, tribal representatives, forest owners, and other business leaders – to learn about and discuss innovative strategies and opportunities for sustainable forest management that can create a stronger economy and healthier communities in a changing climate.
The day will include a mix of plenary speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions. Our speakers will address a range of topics including climate resilience, carbon markets, policy, forest products, wildfires, and the values and assets of healthy forests.
Breakfast, lunch, and a happy hour reception will be provided.
Regular registration is open until September 31st!
