You can help us by emailing the White Township Board of Supervisors (email@example.com) to encourage them to accept the Carbon Off-Set Contract.
Contingent on meeting protocol standards, the Township may be offered a 40-year carbon off-set contract for over $211,000 to be paid within the first three to five years. Simply put, the township must agree to leave WWNC undisturbed for 40 years, except for necessary maintenance.
WWNC would be protected for its intended uses, as defined by Project 70, of recreation, conservation, and history preservation.
Project 70 does not permit for-profit timber harvesting.
The money, received early in the contract, could be invested and contribute toward an ongoing revenue source for the Township.
Protecting the trees helps reduce the impact of climate change, manage stormwater runoff, preserve the value of the surrounding. properties, and allow WWNC to progress toward becoming an old-growth forest.
In summary, accepting the carbon offset contract would protect the environment and WWNC, provide income to the Township, and suggest a shift to a more progressive, responsive government – a win, win, win.
