McMaster Carbon Sink Forest
The McMaster Centre for Climate Change in collaboration with Nature at McMaster, the Academic Sustainability Programs Office, and Trees for Hamilton, have worked together to create a Carbon Sink Forest. This forest sequesters carbon through planting trees which helps to mitigate climate change.
The goal of this event is to plant 250 trees! Bring your colleagues, friends, and family members and help preserve biodiversity, sustainability, conservation, and improve the air quality and human health this Earth Day!
A special thank you to Carbon Streaming Corporation for their generous support.
