Lower Mississippi Valley Group Afforestation Project
USDA, The Nature Conservancy and Disney are collaborating on a program to reforest marginal cropland in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley.
With only isolated patches remaining of what was once North America’s largest expanse of floodplain forest, the Lower Mississippi Valley offers fertile ground for a series of tree-planting projects that will capture carbon dioxide while restoring forests in this massive river basin. The Lower Mississippi Valley Grouped Afforestation Project (LMVGAP) is projected to sequester approximately 517,980 metric tons of carbon dioxide over 70 years. Learn more.
