How do rising sea levels impact our region? Learn what architects, engineers, and urban planners are doing to make the coastal infrastructure around the Boston area more resilient to our changing climate. How do we make decisions when we don’t have all of the information we need? What are the most important factors to consider? Add your voice to a conversation about preparing for the future with planners and stakeholders who are facing these decisions. Refreshments available starting at 6:30 pm.
Advance registration begins at 9:00 am, Wednesday, February 10 (Monday, February 8 for Museum members).
