Storm Surge Series - Reducing Community Risk through Enhancing Comprehensive Community Resiliency in the Great Marsh

Wednesday, October 1st * at 7 PM, at the Newbury Elementary School (Round School), 63 Hanover St, Newbury.

Peter Phippen will discuss the Department of Interior grant received by the National Wildlife Federation, who will work with the Great Marsh Resiliency Partnership to reduce the impacts of sea level rise and climate change storms on the coastal and watershed communities of the Great Marsh through restoration, assessment, and community based planning. The Great Marsh Resiliency Partnership is a coalition of conservation groups and federal, state and local agencies, organized to protect coastal communities along the North Shore of Massachusetts from storms and flooding by strengthening the resiliency of the ecological systems upon which those communities depend.
