As the Seas Rise, Can We Restore Our Coastal Habitats?

February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford St
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States

Event Details: https://hmnh.harvard.edu/event/seas-rise-can-we-restore-our-coastal-habitats Steven Handel, Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolution, Rutgers University Visiting Professor in Landscape Architecture, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University As sea levels rise, the potential loss of coastal habitats is a threat across the globe. This is of particular concern in the eastern United States, where coastlines are largely developed and offer few open spaces for habitats to move inland if present natural lands are lost. Considering the current conditions of coastlines, as well as
