Gaining Insights and Charting a Course

Workshop #2: What tools are available?

Monday, May 5 | 6:30-8:30pm | Rye Jr. High School cafeteria

Workshop #1 reviewed the basics of climate science and participants voiced their thoughts about how Rye may be at risk as conditions change. Join Rye officials, staff, land use boards and commissions, and residents at Workshop #2 to explore tools and strategies that can help make Rye less vulnerable to severe storms and a changing climate. Also, learn approaches taken in other communities.

  • Hear how state, regional, and local efforts are helping Rye prepare for climate change
  • Review discussion from Workshop #1
  • Learn about and discuss tools and strategies to “adapt” to climate change
  • See examples of these strategies in action

The Workshop will take place on Monday, May 5 from 6:30-8:30 PM in the Rye Jr. High School cafeteria. Light refreshments provided! Register here or contact Kim Reed, Town Planner at 964-­9800 ext. 21.

This project is led by a steering committee of Rye community members including Bill Epperson, Phil Winslow, Sam Winebaum, Victor Azzi, Danna Truslow, Kevin Walsh, and Kim Reed. This project is funded by a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the New Hampshire Coastal Program, and managed by staff from the University of New Hampshire, Rockingham Planning Commission, and the NH Coastal Adaptation Workgroup.
