March 5 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Understanding Forest Carbon: How Forests Help Us Mitigate Climate Change
Tuesday, March 5 | 6:30 – 8 pm | FREE | IN-PERSON at NBNC
Part of the Naturalist Journeys 2024 Winter Presentation Series
Learn all about forests and the carbon they sequester and store. Dr. Kosiba will showcase the complex forest carbon cycle, from living trees down to the soil. She’ll also provide insights into the role that Vermont’s forests have in helping us mitigate the impacts of climate change. But because forests themselves face numerous stressors, she’ll provide options we can use to help forests sustain this critical benefit.
About Ali Kosiba: Dr. Alexandra (Ali) Kosiba is a forest ecophysiologist and Extension Assistant Professor of Forestry at the University of Vermont. As the Extension Forester, she creates resources and conducts applied research to help landowners, foresters, and decision-makers better understand the impacts of climate change and other stressors on Vermont’s forests and management techniques to improve forest resilience. Ali serves as a regional educator on forest carbon science and management and is the state lead on the Vermont Forest Carbon Inventory. She also works on various forest health topics, like planning and management for at risk tree species, land planning for maintaining critical forest services, and forest monitoring. Before coming to UVM, she was the Climate Forester for the State of Vermont, Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation – and the first climate forester in the nation.
About Naturalist Journeys 2024: This year’s series focuses on climate change — but not in the ways you might expect. From beavers to sheep, forestry to fires, and music to mental health, we’ll explore unconventional approaches to safeguarding our planet, our landscapes, and ourselves in this climate crisis. The series runs January through March, with a mix of virtual and in-person presentations.
