Land Trust Enhances Carbon Sequestration

The accredited Marin Agricultural Land Trust in California preserves working farms, but its work protects much more than the land. Feeling the impacts of climate change in its region, MALT is working with its landowners to improve farming and ranching stewardship practices while providing the benefits of local food production, habitat protection and enhancement of ecosystem services, such as clean air, clean water and carbon sequestration.

Farmland Key in Tackling Climate Change

“Certain land management practices can add more plant material to soils as well as hold more of that organic matter in the soil for a longer time and thus build up the storage of that carbon in the soil,” he said. “There are ways to both maintain high production as well as build soil carbon and reduce other greenhouse gases…” Farmland may be key in tackling climate change.

Missouri Farms Hold Big Potential as Carbon Storehouse

Through conservation farming practices, Missourians are finding ways to battle erosion and benefit the soil. Many of these practices have an added bonus of sucking carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing the carbon in the soil.

Forest Lands

Forests are areas of land covered with trees or other woody vegetation. In the United States, EPA reports that forests occupy approximately 751 million acres – about one third of the country’s total land area. These forests provide many benefits and services, including recreation, clean air and water, wildlife habitat, carbon storage, and a variety of forest products.

The Elkhorn Slough Foundation – Clearing the Floodplain, Adapting to Change

The ESF has been responding to potential climate change impacts by working cooperatively to study and address salt marsh loss. In addition to working with agencies and regional research facilities, ESF conservation projects such as constructing water control structures to adapt to rising sea levels and acquisition and management efforts to “clear the floodplain” address climate change challenges by allowing for migration of tidal marshes and building ecological resilience.
