Part of the series The Boston Harbor Islands - Resilience and Change, Co-Presented by Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands and Old South Meeting House and Co-Sponsored by Boston Harbor Now.
How does climate change affect the Massachusetts coastline, and what can we do to protect the coastline from extreme weather? Learn from Marc Albert of the National Parks of Boston, and Sonja Plesset of the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation, about the unique geology and increasing vulnerability of the Boston Harbor Islands to coastal storms, and initial plans to establish a living laboratory on the islands. The laboratory is envisioned as a major new research and recreation destination within the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park – engaging researchers, students and the public in understanding coastal change, and testing innovative ways to protect our coastal resources and communities.
