Shasta County, California, USA
The McCloud River project is located 20 miles southeast of Mt. Shasta in Northern California. An improved forest management project, it generates carbon emissions reductions through sustainable practices of commercial timberlands. Improved Forest Management (IFM) is an agriculture, forestry, and land-use project category that relates to forest management activities that result in increased carbon stocks within forests and/or reduce greenhouse gas emissions from forestry activities when compared to business-as-usual forestry practices. By using sustainable practices, landowners have preserved more forest and actually increased the amount of carbon stored by the property over time. The McCloud River project in Northern California sequesters carbon from the atmosphere and provides safe habitats for wildlife.

Climate Action Reserve encourages action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by ensuring the environmental integrity and financial benefit of emissions reduction projects. It was founded in 2001 and establishes high quality standards for carbon offset projects, oversees independent third-party verification bodies, issues carbon credits generated from such projects and tracks the transaction of credits over time in a transparent, publicly-accessible system.
Avoid wasting water and clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. The McCloud River project acts as a natural water filter that provides clean water for the surrounding areas.
Climate change is a global challenge that affects everyone, everywhere. By removing carbon from the atmosphere, this project helps combat climate change.
Sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, halting and reversing land degradation, and halting biodiversity loss. The McCloud River is home to an array of wildlife and plantlife that has a protected place to live.
