Grazing, Grass and Gas

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Forests are often at the center of conversations about using natural systems to capture and store carbon pollution, but research shows grasslands and prairies are similarly important. How they are managed can potentially have a big impact on storing greenhouse gases so they don’t enter the atmosphere.

Nudged by researchers and environmentalists, ranchers are learning new ways to handle livestock and the forage they graze on. Conservationists are also having to rethink their strategies as the changing climate pushes species up mountains, while others move toward the poles.

How is climate affecting land conservation in the United States and other parts of the world? What is California doing to turn rangelands and cows grazing on them from part of the problem to part of the solution? Join conservationists and a researcher for a discussion about protecting ecosystems in the era of climate disruption.

Pete Geddes, Managing Director, American Prairie Reserve
Kristine Tompkins, Founder and President, Conservacion Patagonica, Former CEO, Patagonia
Whendee Silver, Professor of Environmental Science, UC Berkeley
