Power and Beauty: Protecting Forests, Fighting Climate Change

Project Title: Green Assets - Middleton ARB Transition

Ensuring that large tracts of forest remain undeveloped is a powerful tool to address climate change. Resisting unavoidable development pressure is made easier when conservation makes economic sense. Winrock provided technical assistance that helped the development company Green Assets Inc. qualify for California Air Resources Board Offset Credits and protect nearly 4,000 acres of South Carolina habitat.
