CLEAN WATER CARBON OFFSETS: Automobile transport to events like the CircumBurke generates CO2 emissions, thus undermining the climate which supports the forests we enjoy. Participants can offset this damage, by purchasing a $2 carbon offset through the ClearWater Carbon Fund. By planting trees in riverbanks and their buffer areas in VERMONT, the Fund not only sequesters and stores carbon dioxide and generates a certified carbon offset, but also protects our rivers and streams. One way to reduce our contributions to climate change .
