Carrie manages the Ecosystem Credit Accounting System, which can be used to generate compliance-grade credits from high quality restoration projects. Carrie is also a lead and co-facilitator for local, regional, and national processes to engage stakeholders around building cost-effective, multi-benefit, nature-based solutions to cleaner water.
