Adapting to Climate Change: Re-envisioning our Public Spaces
Thursday, February 25, 2021
Charles River watershed communities face many threats from our changing climate, including flooding, drought, extreme heat, unprecedented "super storms," and sea level rise. Adapting our landscapes to this brave new world will require considerable investment and innovation. Join CRWA to hear about two community planning efforts that focused on using available public space, parklands, and roadways as an initial step in adapting to the inevitable consequences of climate change. Changing the function of these public areas can restore Charles River water quality and habitat while reducing flooding and heat impacts, creating more community spaces, and building community resilience.
