Climate Frontlines Tour at Nurture Nature Center @ Nurture Nature Center
Mar 12 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

In recent years, major storms have brought massive flooding and millions of dollars of damage across the Lehigh Valley region. Climate change research suggests that flood-prone areas, such as the Lehigh Valley, can expect an increase in flooding.

How can communities prepare for future impacts?

Come to PennEnvironment’s Lehigh Valley on the Frontlines of Climate Change on March 12 at Nurture Nature Center to discuss the local effects of climate change in the Lehigh Valley and what we can do to change it. Hear from local leaders as they discuss the challenges they face in preparing for future climate conditions, and the local energy policies and planning options for preparing the area for flooding and other extreme weather.

RSVP here: (215) 732-5897 ext. 4
