Sun., Feb. 19
Meet at Tenean Beach, Dorchester
Join NepRWA scientists to learn about the effects of extreme climate on our coastline, our plans for salt marsh restoration projects, and how we’re working to prepare our communities for the realities of climate change.
Flooding from king tides can make roads impassable, cause property damage, and potentially put people’s lives at risk. Come see firsthand the extent of tidal flooding, which is expected to get worse with sea level rise and more frequent and intense storms.
Following the brief talk, attendees can join members of the Neponset Greenway Council on either a guided walk or guided bike ride along the Greenway Trail to Granite Ave to view the Neponset Estuary as it gets inundated by the tide. Driving to Granite Ave is also an option. (Bring a bike if you wish to ride!)
This is a FREE public event and light refreshments will be served. Registration is appreciated for planning purposes.
NepRWA is currently working on a number of climate-related projects, both in freshwater and along the coast. We’re proud to partner on these projects with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the Town of Milton, and the Cities of Boston and Quincy.
