Wicked High Tides

Join the Museum of Science for an evening devoted to the social, economic, and environmental effects of sea level rise in Boston.

In this forum event, you'll explore the social, economic, and environmental impacts of sea level rise, work with others to recommend resilience strategies, and learn about how participating in community science can help inform scientists about how communities are at risk for flooding. Light refreshments will be provided.

How should communities build resilience for dealing with sea level rise in the coming decades? Nuisance flooding, or sunny day flooding, is increasing in the US. This is caused by sea level rise, which increases the risk to coastal communities with regular tidal flooding and higher storm surges during coastal storms.

In this program you will explore the social, economic and environmental impacts of sea level rise, work with others to recommend resilience strategies, and learn about how participating in community science can help inform scientists about which communities are at risk for flooding. Join us for a fun and interactive evening where you can discover how communities around Boston can be more resilient to sea level rise!

Due to limited space, RSVP is required.
