Zoom Lecture: The Effect of Climate Change on Cultural Heritage
October 16 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
Lighthouses, farmsteads, cemeteries, ancient shell middens and shipwrecks–all are part of Cape Cod’s history, as well as our present. But what about the future? With the likelihood of rising sea level and more severe storms, climate change poses a real threat not just to natural resources and ecosystems, but to cultural resources as well. Cape Cod National Seashore Historian Bill Burke will discuss what the National Park Service is doing to prepare for climate change effects on prehistoric and historic resources.
