Town Hall meetings have been organized in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and Savannah to discuss the effects of climate change and rising sea levels on our coast.
Participants will be introduced to climate change through the film “Climate Change: A Global Reality.” Following the program, a group of local experts will be on hand to discuss the impacts climate change has on the area and how the community and individuals can best prepare for rising sea levels.
Specific town meeting locations are: Charleston, SC at the Charleston County Public Library on July 16th at 9:30 am; Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, SC on August 27th from 9:30 am to 4 pm.
