Water Water Everywhere: New Coastal Resilience Resources Available

Upcoming Workshop 5/8/18, Augusta – Rising Water: Adapting Maine Communities

Those in Maine who are lucky enough to live on or in close proximity to the ocean, lakes, rivers and estuaries are challenged by a rising sea level and more intense storms. Everywhere we look storm surges, extreme high tides, and flooding are happening. Join us in Augusta on May 8th to discuss these very real changes in our climate and how communities can respond.

This workshop provides a detailed exploration of NEW guidance documents created for the Municipal Planning Assistance Program that can help communities:

  2. identify nature-based solutions,

  4. measure the effectiveness of our actions to reduce flood risk

Our speakers’ perspectives will help to create the diverse conversation that communities need to both move forward and be productive.
