Executive Director Torri Estrada and Dr. Jeff Creque from the Carbon Cycle Institute (CCI) presented the underlying science of carbon sequestration. This includes how the carbon cycle is connected and drives climate change, the role of the terrestrial ecosystem, generally, and soils, specifically, in the dynamics of climate change. They provided an overview of carbon farming and how CCI and its partners are engaging managers of working lands (farms, ranches, dairies, and even urban gardens) to engage the carbon cycle and drive carbon sequestration in their landscapes. They also provided a broad overview of the institutions and policies and programs that currently support carbon farming and terrestrial carbon sequestration, focused on CA.
