Preparing for Sea Level Rise

Preparing for Sea Level Rise: Climate Vulnerability for Coastal Environments and Communities - Mass Audubon and Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) will present on the impacts of sea level rise on communities within Cape Cod, how to prepare as individuals, and how to build resilience as communities. We will dive into projected levels of sea level rise, connections with climate change, correlations with flooding, and inequitable impacts on communities. The presentation will also include sea level rise impacts on salt marshes and restoration actions to protect these coastal habitats. After this presentation, you’ll have the tools to determine how to prepare for a flood to protect yourself, neighbors and the broader community and will learn of the threats that the natural environment is facing in light of rising sea levels.  This program is co-sponsored by Eldredge Public Library, Wellfleet Public Library and Sturgis Library.  Registration is required at https://tinyurl.com/1s76p92g

Ticks: “One Bite Can Change Your Life…”

Ticks: “One Bite Can Change Your Life…” with Entomologist Larry Dapsis from the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension.  

Lyme Disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in Massachusetts and is now considered to be a public health crisis.

This will include an exercise in tick identification using temporary tattoos and go over all elements of personal protection.    Join us for this virtual program that includes a Q&A session with Larry Dapsis.
