Buy Arcata Community Forest carbon offsets before February 7 and your dollar goes 50 percent farther to grow large old trees and sequester more carbon for the long term. In the past two months alone, people bought 675 metric tons of greenhouse gas offsets from the Arcata Community Forest's Jacoby Creek Barnum Tract. That’s equal to pulling the emissions from 675 roundtrips between SFO to JFK out of the atmosphere. If you've been thinking about buying offsets for gifts or to offset travel, business or development emissions, now's the time. Spread the word!

GIVE THE GIFT OF CLIMATE PROTECTION FOR THE HOLIDAYS
(Arcata, CA) – Looking for a holiday gift for the hiker, frequent flyer or environmentally-conscious person in your life? Consider the gift of Arcata Community Forest carbon offsets from TerraPass.
Thanks to a partnership between the City of Arcata’s Environmental Services Department and TerraPass, you can now invest in ecologically based, sustainable forestry and protect our climate by purchasing carbon offsets from our own Arcata Community Forest’s Jacoby Creek/Barnum Tract.
When you buy offsets from the Arcata Community Forest’s Jacoby Creek/Barnum Tract through TerraPass, you are helping to grow large old trees and paying for carbon sequestration for the long term—that’s 100 years or more.
For just $13.12 per metric ton, you can reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere equivalent to a round trip flight from SFO to JFK or driving a midsized car 2,000 miles. Give the eco gift that keeps on giving to the whole planet or offset your own holiday travel.
For more information, or to buy Arcata Community Forest carbon offsets, go to www.TerraPass.com/shop/Arcata or call the City of Arcata Environmental Services Department at (707) 822-8184.
