Join Island Institute Marine Scientist Dr. Susie Arnold for a virtual discussion about ocean climate change in Maine and some of the strategies being implemented locally to mitigate and adapt to change.
This is a unique opportunity to learn about Maine’s latest climate data, what it means for our coastal residents, and what the Island Institute and other partners are doing to help communities take action. Importantly, Susie will discuss why it’s important to stay hopeful despite the challenges we face from climate change.
Registration is free and open to the public.
Sign up today to receive instructions for joining the virtual discussion. You’ll also be invited to submit questions about this critical topic for Dr. Arnold in advance of the event.
