Understanding Sea Level Rise: A Brown Bag Lunch with Senior Climate Services Program Leader Eric Walberg

 

Sea level rise poses a major challenge for communities located in the coastal zone of Massachusetts. Understanding the changes that are underway and utilizing a green infrastructure-based approach to adaptation are essential to maximizing the resiliency of natural systems and the built environment.

 

Come and participate in a discussion led by Senior Climate Services Program Leader Eric Walberg on sea level rise projections and the use of green infrastructure and living shorelines as an alternative to traditional infrastructure solutions. 

 

This informative presentation will be held on Tuesday, November 18, at  our headquarters in Plymouth, MA.  The event is free to attend, but registration is required.
