The Wood Pawcatuck Watershed Association (WPWA) is proud to present their Adapting the Watershed lecture series co-sponsored by the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Institute. It focuses on how communities within the Wood-Pawcatuck watershed can adapt to the many changes we may experience due to climate change. These proactive and informative talks will take a watershed approach to how they can prepare and adapt to these changes.
Rhode Island towns that fall within the watershed include West Greenwich, Exeter, South Kingstown, Charlestown, Westerly, Hopkinton and Richmond. Connecticut towns that fall within the watershed include Stonington, N. Stonington, Voluntown and Sterling. This is an opportunity for these communities to come together to understand the changes that may impact them in the future and how they can react accordingly. The lectures are free and open to the public, and all attendees will receive a free 12-month membership to WPWA.
All talks will be held from 6:30-8:30pm, but doors open at 6pm
