Workshop: How coastal towns can prepare for climate change

News from Kennebunk’s Energy Efficiency Committee:

You are invited!

Please join us on Wednesday, October 16th from 4:30 to 7:00 pm for an important interactive workshop on preparing towns in southern Maine for climate related risks. The event will be held at Wells Reserve at Laudholm. Dinner will be provided.

Who: The Town of Wells, in partnership with the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve System and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are co-hosting this community event about how coastal towns in southern Maine can prepare for climate related risks, such as increased flooding and sea level rise. The October 16th workshop is co-hosted by the Sierra Club Maine Chapter.

What: We invite you to participate in an interactive simulation in which participants work together to discuss local climate change risks and how to prepare for them. Dinner will be provided! Participation is open to the public, but we wanted to send you a special invitation to attend this event.

Why: Coastal towns face challenging decisions about how to prepare for and reduce the potential impacts of a changing climate, which may include intensified storms, rising sea levels, and increased flooding. These impacts could threaten homes, infrastructure, economic stability, and quality of life. This event will help residents explore how to protect their town.
