Title: “Rising Sea Levels, Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Transition Newburyport”
June 20th, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM, coffee at 6:30 PM
Conrad Willeman is an Initiating Group member of Transition Newburyport.
Transition Newburyport is a local grassroots initiative based on a model developed by Rob Hopkins, a teacher of permaculture and natural building in the UK. A transition initiative is a model for engaging the community in a thoughtful process of planning a local response to the challenges of Climate Change, Natural Resource depletion and Economic Contraction, all of which will bring dramatic changes to life as we know it today.
Conrad will introduce Transition Newburyport, lead through the issues Transition Newburyport is involved with relating to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Sea-level rise is an important issue for Parker River NWR and Transition Newburyport.
