Saving our Shoreline: Building Resilience across Salem Sound Communities
January 19 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm
Sometimes it seems that not much is happening to address climate change, but since 2017 when the State began its Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program, cities and towns in Massachusetts have identified climate hazards, assessed vulnerabilities, and written action plans to improve resilience to climate change. These action plans are now being implemented.
Barbara Warren, Salem Sound Coastwatch’s Executive Director, has been working with Salem Sound communities to build coastal resilience. She will discuss three current projects that Salem Sound Coastwatch is working on with Marblehead, Salem, and Peabody. Barbara will include in her talk other projects, such as the Collins Cove Living Shoreline, Manchester’s Sawmill Brook tide gate removal, and Beverly’s Water Street Pump Station study.
This program will be offered in person and online via Zoom. Space is limited to join in person – please register in advance here. To attend via Zoom, please register in advance for this meeting here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Underwater in Salem Sound is jointly sponsored by Salem Sound Coastwatch and the Abbot Public Library. For more information, please visit www.salemsound.org.
