Speaker: Zach Wirtz – Community Manager for the Chicago Region Trees Initiative (CRTI),
Topic: The Chicago Region Carbon Program (CRCP)
Description: The Chicago Region Carbon Program (CRCP) provides opportunities to invest in tree planting and preservation and also efficient enrollment of planting and preservation projects into a region-wide carbon crediting program. Revenue from carbon credit sales can provide funding for urban forestry projects, enabling landowners to expand the health of the urban forest and the quality of life for people in the communities where those projects take place. Zach Wirtz, CRTI Community Manager, will present information on the carbon crediting process, how to get involved in the CRCP, and share tips on how to submit a successful project. Resources from the CRTI and their carbon credit registry partner, City Forest Credits, will be shared during and after the presentation.
