Event Details

Stay on top of the science this New Year, with our new winter evening lecture series! Wetlands are critical for protecting our homes from storms and filtering out pollution before it reaches the Bay, in addition to sheltering wildlife above and below the water. But can they survive the onslaught of rising seas? In this talk, SERC biogeochemist Pat Megonigal will outline how wetlands have evolved ways to resist sea level rise, and what it may take for them to succeed in the 21st century. Free and open to all. No registration required—a curious mind is all you need to bring.
