Forests and Carbon: What’s the big deal?

October 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join forest ecologist, Dr. Mary Arthur, on a hike to learn about the forest carbon cycle and why forests matter to a changing climate.

Spend the morning learning how forests absorb and release carbon dioxide, and why forests matter to the global cycling of carbon, and therefore to changing climate. We will hike through parts of Floracliff’s mature forest as well as early successional post-agricultural forest, as we think about the implications of forest management on forest carbon.

Program Leader: Dr. Mary Arthur, Professor Emeritus – Forest Ecology, University of Kentucky

Hiking Level: moderate

Bring: water

Optional: hiking poles, snack, camera, binoculars

Floracliff has multiple entry gates. The meeting location for this program will be emailed to all registered participants a few days before the program.
