Land Trust Alliance Offsets
Sponsored by The Climate Trust, emissions from Land Trust Alliance staff travel, staff hotel rooms, heating/cooling/electrical at the Oregon Convention Center, field trip buses and freight to/from Portland will be offset through the Zumwalt Prairie Carbon Cooperative. The Zumwalt Prairie Carbon Cooperative in Wallowa County, Oregon is a 22,000-acre initiative made possible through partnership with The Climate Trust and The Nature Conservancy to advance conservation of North America’s largest intact bunchgrass prairie.
Offsets for Rally attendees
The lower Columbia River region is ecologically diverse, heavily forested and highly productive for removing carbon from the atmosphere. For Rally attendees choosing to offset their travel, Columbia Land Trust is providing the forest carbon removal credits through American Carbon Registry voluntary market. Columbia Land Trust launched a forest carbon credit project on 13,500 acres of forestland in three ecoregions and dedicates 100% of credit sale revenues to acquire and conserve additional forestland. Columbia Land Trust’s vision for forest protection is to ensure the footprint of forest cover – vital for climate, habitat, water and economy – does not diminish.
