Wednesday, April 1, 7:30 pm

Julie Wormser, executive director of the Boston Harbor Association, will
explore the city's relationship with the water on its shores in an
April 1 discussion
at Beacon Hill Friends House.
The session, part of BHFH's series of Wednesday night programs exploring
issues of local significance, will run from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Wormser, a veteran environmentalist who has headed the Harbor Association
since 2011, will address the implications of projections of once-a-year
flooding of up to 7 percent of the city's land by 2050 that could become a
daily occurrence by 2100. The findings are included in a scientific
analysis of the issues, titled Prepping for the Rising Tide, that you can
download here: http://tbha.org/preparing-rising-tide-report.

She'll describe solutions employed by various cities around the world, and
explore which ones might make sense for Boston.

There is no charge for the event, but seating is limited.
