The impacts of climate change are becoming increasingly visible in our state and across the nation. You’ve probably noticed more frequent news coverage of intense storms, unusual temperatures, ocean warming, and coastal flooding. As these issues become more prevalent in our daily lives, it’s becoming more important to understand the impacts of these events — today and in the future. Ensuring the region’s resiliency to climate impacts, such as sea level rise, requires a scientifically informed and engaged public. Here’s your chance to join that group of engaged individuals in your community!
Join us for a 90 minute interactive learning experience to explore the data behind sea level rise. Together, we’ll explore models projecting impacts in your community, and we’ll examine potential resiliency measures.
