Midwestern U.S. Forest Restoration Climate Action Project

The Midwestern forest restoration project involves the restoration of almost 1,000 acres of forest in Ohio and Indiana. It is estimated that the project will reduce, avoid or mitigate approximately 550,000 tons of carbon dioxide over 40 years by bringing back native forests to this area. The project is taking place on Nature Conservancy preserves and state government land in Ohio and Indiana. The Nature Conservancy's Ohio and Indiana chapters manage this project together, with the Cinergy Corporation providing $500,000 in project support funding.
