As part of the ongoing CREATE Resilience project, Nurture Nature Center will be hosting a virtual discussion forum on Tuesday September 29th from 6:30 to 8:30 (registration here). Discussing how to make our communities more resilient in the face of unexpected hazards seems especially relevant given the events of recent months. Strong communities with good planning can become more resilient in the face of natural hazards. What are the areas of need in our communities? What strategies will make us more resilient to weather and climate-related natural hazards? Let’s build the vision together.
The forum will feature a keynote presentation from meteorologist Gary Szatkowski entitled “Watching the Weather: Lessons From the Past, Visions for the Future.” After the presentation, participants will engage virtually in a variety of ways to share their ideas about hazards and resilience. Your input will help inform several community outcomes associated with the CREATE Resilience project, including reports to leaders, community art murals, and educational materials for residents.
Upon registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar as well as a link to an online mapping exercise. Participants will receive $50 for their input upon completing the mapping exercise, the forum, and a post-forum survey. Please see the event flyer or Facebook event for more details, and share the information with others who may be interested.
