Topic: Helping Tidal Wetland and Beach Plants to Weather Climate Change

Speaker: Louisa Thompson

Tidal wetland and beach habitats are under threat from sea level rise and other aspects of climate change. Learn how shoreline property owners – public and private – can assess the potential to preserve tidal habitats and help them migrate to higher elevations, ensuring continuation of the important ecosystem services these plant communities provide.
