“Coastal Resilience and MVP”, Presented by Barbara Warren, Salem Sound Coastwatch Executive Director, and MassBays National Estuary Regional Coordinator
January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
All are invited to the first lecture of the 2019 “Underwater in Salem Sound” lecture series on Wednesday, January 30th at 7:00 pm at the Abbot Public Library, 235 Pleasant St. in Marblehead.
Cities and towns across Massachusetts are engaging in Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) to tackle the difficult challenges brought by our changing climate. The first presentation in this year’s “Underwater in Salem Sound” lecture series will discuss probably the most important issue of our time – the climate change crisis and what we can do about it.
Barbara Warren, Salem Sound Coastwatch’s Executive Director, has facilitated the climate change vulnerability and adaptation plans for Marblehead, Manchester, and Salem. In an informative presentation, Barbara will share the efforts of Salem Sound communities and Salem Sound Coastwatch to protect our coastal communities in the face of the growing challenges of sea level rise and severe storms. We will also discuss how, individually and collectively, we can contribute to solutions. Come learn and engage in climate adaptation actions.
Underwater in Salem Sound is jointly sponsored by Salem Sound Coastwatch and the Abbot Public Library. For more information, please visit www.salemsound.org.
