Wildfire to Wildflowers: Restoring CA Lands for Climate Justice

Wednesday | November 20, 2019 | 7:00 pm — 8:30 pm

Dimond Branch, Oakland Public Library | 3565 Fruitvale Avenue, Oakland, CA 94602

Free Lecture: Ildiko Polony, Native Plant Nursery Manager for Literacy for Environmental Justice in the Bayview District of San Francisco, will discuss the awesome potential of restored habitat to sequester carbon, mitigate the impacts of climate change and restore our global carbon cycle. By restoring habitat we re-invigorate the biological systems wherein plants sequester carbon dioxide and exhale the oxygen that we breath. In order to reach California’s climate and carbon goals we must not only reduce emissions but also restore habitat. Ildiko will zoom out to describe the nexus between California climate policy, the global carbon cycle and community based habitat restoration, then zoom in to the case study of Literacy for Environmental Justice’s work restoring habitat in the environmental justice community of the Bayview.
