Conservation as climate mitigation: Using carbon programs to protect and restore ecosystems


Carbon programs create financial incentives to reduce emissions and have the potential to be integrated into a variety of conservation and restoration programs. At the Science to Policy Summit 2024, carbon program business leaders, resource managers, researchers, and restoration practitioners will share the latest research on carbon sequestration, how carbon programs are currently operating, and how they are evolving to meet new restoration and conservation initiatives. 

The Science to Policy Summit will feature panel presentations, lightning talks, and networking. 

The Summit will take place at Lacamas Lake Lodge on the banks of Lacamas Lake, and includes morning coffee and boxed lunch. A virtual option is also available.

As an added incentive to in-person attendees, the Estuary Partnership will offer lunchtime paddles on beautiful Lacamas Lake in our two Big Canoes.

Speakers include: 

  • Catherine Macdonald, Oregon Climate Action Commission
  • Rose Graves, The Nature Conservancy
  • Mike Johnson, Washington Department of Ecology
  • Taylor Larson, Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board
  • Ian Sinks, Columbia Land Trust
  • Jessica Stalberger, ANEW Climate, LLC
