What Does a Changing Climate Mean for Georgia’s Coast?

A webinar presented by the Georgia Climate Project (http://www.GeorgiaClimateProject.org​)

Coastal Georgia has experienced 10 inches of sea level rise since 1935. The GeorgiaDepartment of Natural Resources recommends that coastal communities plan for 4 to 6.3 feet of sea level rise by 2100. Please join us as we explore what these changes will mean for Georgia’s coast and what we can do to prepare.
