RYE — Join three of the founding members of the NH Coastal Adaptation Work Group, Sherry Godlewski, Steve Miller, and Peter Britz on Thurs., February 6, for an evening of dinner and conversation at the Seacoast Science Center. After a cocktail reception and dinner, they will give straight answers on what to expect our coast to be like over the next fifty years.
Presented in three balanced and entertaining segments, this is your chance to finally understand how climate change, storm surge and sea level rise will impact our coast. First we will review the science behind climate change, so that once and for all we can all take a deep breath and say yes - climate change is real and its current accelerated pace is due to human activities. In part two, we will dissect the sea level rise component of climate change to clarify the difference between sea level rise and storm surge. You’ll find out how communities are giving special emphasis on the impact of both to coastal infrastructure, historic resources and habitats. Part three will highlight how our coastal communities are meeting the climate challenge. You won’t think of climate change in the same way again.
The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail reception followed by dinner catered by Liberty Lane Catering, and presentation. The cost is $50.00 for SSC members or $60.00 for non-members. Reserve your seat by February 1 at www.seacoastsciencecenter/events, or by contacting Ashley at 603-436-8043, ext. 14.
The Seacoast Science Center is located at 570 Ocean Boulevard in Rye.
