The WLL State Team sponsored a statewide Learning Session entitled “The Carbon Market: Soil Health, Carbon Sequestration & Economics” on June 15, 2021. The session was attended by 50 participants that gained valuable information and offered thought-provoking questions.
Hillary Olson, NRCS State Soil Health Specialist shared about soil health, carbon sequestration and federal conservation programs. Kate Bussanmas, Assistant Director of IDALS-DSCWQ shared about state conservation programs. And, Ruth McCabe, Conservation Agronomist with Heartland Coop shared lots of information about the carbon market and tied all information shared together. All facts and examples shared in the session were extremely important and valuable to anyone considering getting involved in the carbon market.
The Zoom session was recorded and the link will be provided to all WLL Local Teams soon.
