The Town of Old Lyme’s Open Space Commission invites all interested parties to a workshop by Adam Whelchel, PhD, Director of Science at The Nature Conservancy’s Connecticut Chapter. The workshop will be held on Friday, March 11, at 9 a.m. in the Old Lyme Town Hall.
The title of Whelchel’s workshop will be, “Salt Marsh Advancement and Sea Level Rise in Old Lyme Parcel by Parcel — Introducing the New Coastal Resilience Online Tool.”
The workshop will review:
- Where and how much conflict will there likely be in the future between the existing built environment (roads, schools, churches, neighborhoods, businesses) and daily tides?
- Where and how much salt marsh advancement will there be?
- Where and how much salt marsh advancement occurs on existing protected and unprotected open space?
