What are climate change predictors—those that affect our natural and man-made environment? In this course, we will discuss how climate change and bay-level rise are impacting our area and what we can expect in the future. Each week, we will examine a different topic including storm surge implications, pollution sources, biological indicators (seagrass, red tide, fish, mangroves, and other living shorelines), local economics, and adaptation techniques. After each class, there will be an optional field trip where students can see firsthand the conditions and adaptation techniques being used to protect the bay and us. Students will pay any admission fees.
