Herring River Carbon Project Feasibility Study

Report Resource
March 2020

About this resource

The Herring River Restoration project plans to restore tidal flows to more than 1,000 acres of former salt marsh in order to generate both habitat and greenhouse gas benefits through reduced methane emissions and increased carbon dioxide sequestration in restored marsh soils.

This first-of-its-kind market feasibility assessment evaluates the Herring River Restoration as a voluntary carbon offset project. It considers the market, technical, financial, legal, and organizational aspects of carbon project development and suggests next steps.

This study was prepared by TerraCarbon as part of the Bringing Wetlands to Market project.
