Can rangelands store soil carbon?
Tune in as Megan Nasto, research scientist at Working Lands Conservation, talks us through the potential for rangelands as a carbon sink. She’ll walk us through how to manage cattle to improve carbon sequestration in rangeland soil and what it would take to accurately measure the carbon those soils sequester. Plus, Megan will talk through some real-life examples of improvements she’s seen in soil health and ecosystem services from rangeland projects. Saddle up!
