Adaptations for PEI’s North Shore Watersheds

Tuesday March 15th – 7:00 pm at the North Rustico Lions Club

  • Dr.  Irene Novaczek –  The Institute of Island Studies – UPEI
  • Erin Taylor – PEI Climate Change Officer – Dept. of E.E.F.
  • Rebecca McQuaid  – Sierra Club PEI – Atlantic Chapter

Extreme weather events and the ensuing infrastructure damage, shoreline erosion and tidal surges experienced by the Island’s North Shore is cause for great concern by watershed residents.

With the increasing occurrence and intensity of storms, rising sea levels and changing temperature, we need to plan ahead and adapt our farming, forestry, development patterns and lifestyles to take account of these coming challenges.

Wheatley River and Hunter-Clyde Watershed Groups would like to present an evening forum on climate change predictions and adaptations for the municipalities and communities in our local watersheds. Experts will provide an overview of the current conditions in our region, predictions for the future and suggestions for appropriate adaptations.

  • Presentations
  • Q & A session
  • Short AGM business meeting for Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group
