Designing for Disaster at the National Building Museum

May 11, 2014 - August 31, 2015

Washington, DC


If you'll be in Washington, DC, in the next year, be sure to check out this beautiful and dramatic new exhibit at the National Building Museum. The Nature Conservancy is the exclusive environmental partner in Designing for Disaster, which opened May 11 and runs through August 2015.

The exhibit explores engineering solutions for communities to reduce risks from increasingly unpredictable weather events, sea level rise and other changes to our climate. Our work in the Southwest to secure water supplies and reduce extreme wildfire risks through smart fire management is one of several Conservancy efforts featured, along with our work in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Eastern seaboard to strengthen coastlines by restoring oyster reefs.
The Conservancy will also be co-sponsoring two panel events with the Museum to explore our natural infrastructure solutions, on Nov. 6, 2014, and Feb. 19, 2015.
