Backcountry + The Nature Conservancy's Reefs to Rooftops Event Series Part 3 of 3
Speaker: Michael McCann, PhD - Urban Marine Ecologist
By 2050, sea levels are expected to rise by 2.5 feet, affecting more than 400,000 New Yorkers living in high-risk flooding areas. What is the role of nature in tackling the tremendous global challenges around climate change? We’ll explore how green infrastructure, oyster reefs, and other natural features can create a healthy and resilient New York, and how our work locally can be exported to help other vulnerable coastal communities around the globe.
Backcountry + The Nature Conservancy will be providing light snacks and drinks for this event. Come by on your way home from work and learn how our partnership and presence in NYC will benefit your backyard.
