On May 9, NSRWA co-sponsored South Shore Climate Change Symposium held at Norwell’s Cushing Memorial Hall. Over 100 state and local leaders and concerned citizens attended the day-long event, which included speakers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, NSRWA, MassBaysNational Grid, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), and the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management, as well as communities throughout the South Shore. NSRWA’s own Samantha Woods spoke on Preparing for the Next Drought, and Sara Grady discussed the Coastal Ecological Impacts of Climate Change.
