Understanding Carbon Markets

Learn about carbon markets and what “net zero” emissions claims mean. We’ll put into perspective how true emissions reductions compare to an offsetting approach and clear the confusion about how to use one of our most powerful tools available to the general public: purchasing power. 

Date: Monday, May 20th
Time: 4pm–5pm
Location: Bemidji Public Library Meeting Room, 509 America Ave NW, Bemidji

Biochar

Join us for a Biochar Burn demonstration at Izaak Walton wetlands. Biochar is charcoal produced by heating organic material in a high-temp, low-oxygen environment. Biochar can be used as a soil amendment and to remove pollutants from impaired waters. Our friends at Clear Water Nitrate Reduction will manage the burn.

Date: Tuesday, May 21st
Time: 1:00pm
Location: Izaak Walton Wetlands—south side of Salem Road, 1 mile west of Mayowood Rd.
