Why care about soil carbon?

Lake-to-Prairie Wild Ones in partnership with Fremont Public Library will present an online program relating to climate change from 7 t 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Elizabeth Bach, ecosystem restoration scientist with The Nature Conservancy at Nachusa Grasslands in Franklin Grove, will provide an overview of soil carbon, why we care, and how conserving and restoring land in Illinois can be part of global climate solutions.

Soil is the largest terrestrial pool of carbon in the world, and deeper understanding of how carbon ends up in soil and how long it stays there can inform actions to directly address global climate change.
