Restoration complete for meadow carbon sequestration projectNovember 22, 2016
How does a robust Sierra meadows ecosystem help fight climate change? Osa meadows is a long-term study site for the CalTrout-spearheaded assessment of greenhouse gas fluxes in Sierra meadows, which aims to answer whether restored meadows are sequestering a significantly larger amount of carbon compared to degraded meadows. CalTrout completed restoration at Osa meadows last month and will be monitoring the project's effectiveness in improving meadow hydrology. Thanks to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Kern Community Foundation for their funding and support.
