Protecting Nature, Strengthening Communities: The Role of Land Conservation in Climate Resilience
November 11 at 2:00 pm
Part of Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s
Fall Speaker Series: Climate Change in the Chesapeake
About this session: As sea level rises, temperatures warm, and precipitation patterns change, it is imperative that we protect land and natural resources across the Delmarva Peninsula. Jim Bass, Coastal Resilience Program Manager at Eastern Shore Land Conservancy (ESLC), will discuss the role of land conservation in the region’s climate adaptation work, which forms the cornerstone of ESLC’s newest and largest initiative: Delmarva Oasis.
About the series: With climate change a global reality, the Chesapeake is one of the most vulnerable areas to warming temperatures, rising sea levels, and increased storm intensities. This series explores the connection between science and culture, looking at how communities are adapting to build climate resilience.
