Big Ivy is an important part of the climate change solution

This 12-minute video summarizes the critical role that Southern Appalachian national forests like Big Ivy can play in sequestering carbon and mitigating climate change. It's produced by Chris Bolgiano, a celebrated environmental author and Virginia resident who lives beside George Washington National Forest in Virginia. (Her book The Appalachian Forest is a must-read for anyone living in these mountains.) Her video presents important new research about the role of old-growth forests in storing carbon.
