Carlos de Araujo Barreto is a soil ecologist who studies the effects of global climate change on the peatlands of Northern Ontario, Canada. Through this Virtual Field Trip connected with Carlos’ Expedition to the Northern Peatlands, Carlos is joining (virtually) an elementary school in Brooklyn, New York to talk about soil health, plants, and how ecosystems are impacted by rising temperatures. He will also share his experiences as a field researcher, inspiring the next generation of field scientists and explorers.
