Climate Change Impacts and Connecticut: What the Future Holds in Store @ A.B. Ceder Room
Mar 30 @ 2:00 pm
Climate Change Impacts and Connecticut: What the Future Holds in Store @ A.B. Ceder Room | Litchfield | Connecticut | United States

Saturday, March 30, 2019

This program, presented by Juliana Barrett, Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut Sea Grant College Program and the Department of Extension, will explore current and predicted climate change impacts for Connecticut and Long Island Sound over the next 100 years; it will also provide information and tools that are available, as well as adaptation strategies to improve our resilience. Storms Irene and Sandy showed just how vulnerable Connecticut is to damage from intense storm events. The impacts of climate change on Connecticut are likely to result in more intense rainfall events, higher air and water temperatures, more vulnerable natural habitats, health-related impacts, and increases to the lands and infrastructure that could be inundated by rising sea levels and riverine flooding. These events challenge communities to come up with adaptation strategies to deal with impacts from climate change and many coastal and inland communities are working to address this challenge.

Brief Bio of Presenter: Juliana Barrett, Ph.D., is with the University of Connecticut Sea Grant College Program and the Department of Extension. Her work focuses on climate change adaptation and coastal habitat management working with Connecticut’s municipalities, NGO’s, and state and federal partners. Prior to coming to Sea Grant in 2006 she worked as a consultant and for The Nature Conservancy as the Director of the Connecticut River Tidelands Last Great Places Program.

2:00 p.m., A. B. Ceder Room, FREEDonations will be accepted to help defray the Conservation Center’s programming expenses.
