This year, the agenda features engaging speakers talking to you about sea-level rise science, the status of NH’s shoreline armoring and why we might want to keep our shorelines alive, wildlife action, NH fish, preparing Dover’s waterfront, a problematic culvert in Newmarket, a surprising thing about groundwater levels, our roads, how NH businesses are thinking about these things, coastal community vulnerability by the numbers, Rye’s determination to be more flood-resilient, and the people who are building back the beautiful dunes in Hampton and Seabrook.
WHO GOES TO IT? Anyone interested in understanding emerging coastal climate change science, identifying vulnerabilities, and developing ways to prepare for the impacts. Past audiences have included municipal officials and volunteers, regional planners, conservation professionals, business owners, researchers, state agency employees, students, and more.
HOW MUCH IS IT? $30, that includes a light breakfast with coffee and a hearty lunch
