In the next National Ecosystem Services Partnership (NESP) webinar, hear from Emily Pindilli, an economist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), about the USGS LandCarbon program’s in-depth ecosystem service assessments at three different National Wildlife Refuges. An overview of the assessment done for the Great Dismal Swamp Refuge will include discussion of the quantification of multiple services including: carbon sequestration, catastrophic fire mitigation, and recreation under a set of management alternatives. Ongoing work in a mangrove ecosystem in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and tidally influenced wetlands in the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge will also be shared. Pindilli will describe methods, results, and lessons learned from these projects and the ecosystem services frameworks used in these assessments. Register Here.
Date and Time: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 – 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST
