A very popular session from the 2019 Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference, Climate Change: Resiliency & Preservation is being presented again as a webinar on Thursday, December 12 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 Noon.
Rising sea levels, more severe storms and natural disasters and more are already making an impact on historic buildings, neighborhoods and open spaces. How will these changes affect existing historic resources and how can we plan for the future? Our panelists will discuss these issues and also, what is being done to protect historic resources, including proactive steps communities can take and resources that exists to assist them.
Participants will be able to submit questions via this webinar, that will be available on Preservation Massachusetts' website after.
Join our panelists and learn more about how climate change is impacting our historic resources and how to be proactive in your own community.
