Have you heard about sea-level rise? Do you think it is just an issue way out in the future? Do you know how it might affect our beaches, waterfront properties, coastal habitats and freshwater supply?
Florida Sea Grant can answer these and other questions with information based on the latest science. Purchase a local brew and join us for a free science café with light snacks and intelligent conversation.
The event will take place June 4, 2015 from 6 to 8 p.m. at First Magnitude Brewing Company, located at 1220 SE Veitch St. in Gainesville, Fla. Karl Havens, director of Florida Sea Grant, will be giving a brief lecture and answering questions about what Floridians should expect and how to prepare for rising seas.
This is a major issue that will affect every person in Florida, whether you own property at the ocean, like to go to the beach, enjoy oysters and fish from our coastal ecosystems, or pay taxes.
We look forward to a productive dialogue around this major environmental issue. For more information, download the event flyer and RSVP on the Facebook event page.
