ACAP Cape Breton welcomes the public to the second and final climate change workshop to discuss recommendations for coastal adaptation. Residents can participate by attending this free workshop at the Port Morien Legion on Highway 255, Port Morien on Wednesday, February 11 from 2pm–4pm. Please note in case of inclement weather the event will be postponed to Wednesday, February 18.
“ACAP Cape Breton will be presenting a draft Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Marconi Trail developed by incorporating local knowledge gathered during our original workshop,” explains Ashley Shelton, Project Coordinator at ACAP Cape Breton and GIS lead for the project. “These observations, combined with data collected through GIS mapping were used to develop a series of recommendations for reducing community vulnerabilities to climate change.”
ACAP Cape Breton is facilitating a series of public workshops to gather information from community members and explore what the future may hold for our coastlines in a changing climate. In the meantime, individuals are encouraged to phone or email with information about changes they’ve seen in their coastline at any time. Please contact ACAP Cape Breton by phone at 902-567-1628 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This free event is open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.
