RMFU hosting “Reducing Emissions Building Soil, and Managing the Bottom Line with Climate Smart Programs” Zoom Webinar on June 11th – Don’t Miss it!

RMFU is bringing together experts in climate research and available incentive programs for an hour long virtual “lunch n learn” workshop next Thursday, June 11th @ NOON MT.

Panelists include:

  • Allison Costa from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation will share information about the 2020 edition of EPA’s comprehensive annual report on nationwide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Since 2005, national greenhouse gas emissions have fallen by 10% while power sector emissions have fallen by 27% – even as the U.S. economy grew by 25%. She will expand on research currently being done on GHG emissions from agricultural activities.
  • Cindy Lair of the Colorado Department of Agriculture will cover the new Soil Health Program Launch set for June 23. Even when state budget troubles are interfering with most new initiatives, the Soil Health Program Initiative is on track. After a year of stakeholder engagement through the Colorado Collaborative for Healthy Soils, the Department has a plan to phase in a fully functional program over the coming year. Listen in and ask questions to learn more about producer opportunities to get involved.
  • Dallas May, a rancher from Limon, Colorado, has been a part of programs that provide carbon offset payments for more than three years. He’ll share his perspective on available payment models as well as his philosophy and production practices.

This workshop will be hosted as a zoom meeting instead of a webinar to encourage collaborative dialogue.
