Building Resilience with Natural Adaptations to Change

Bainbridge Island Land Trust is working with property owners to implement natural adaptation solutions to build more resilient coastal systems. The Powel Shoreline Restoration Project removed shoreline bulkheading to enhance coastal habitats and reduce risks of destructive undercutting, leveraging a failing bulkhead to produce an adaptive win-win solution to adapt to change.

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.
