Webinar to cover carbon sequestration

   An Iowa Learning Farms conservation webinar, “An Overview of Carbon Sequestration in Ecosystems, will be presented  Aug. 3 at noon.

   It will feature Michael Burchell, professor and Extension leader, Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, North Carolina State University.

   Burchell is the 2021-2022 president of the American Ecological Engineering Society and is recognized for his work improving design and implementation techniques of ecological engineered projects, such as constructed wetlands and stormwater treatment, to maximize ecosystem services, particularly for water quality improvement.

   Iowa Learning Farms is an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach conservation and water quality education program.

   In the webinar, Burchell will discuss the increased interest in different ecosystems’ potential to sequester carbon as an offset to atmospheric carbon dioxide. He will provide an overview of how carbon sequestration is accomplished in different ecosystems, the potential and limitations of each, and best practices in management to maximize effectiveness.
