Water Has Memory: Resiliency and Historical

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join The Gables as we welcome Rodney Rowland, Director of Facilities and Environmental  Sustainability at Strawbery Banke Museum, for a discussion of some of the greatest threats to  Strawbery Banke and how they are being addressed. Strawbery Banke, much like The Gables, is  a waterfront campus of historic properties, placing it in a high-risk area for impacts of sea level  rise. The museum has been working with the city of Portsmouth, NH, University of New  Hampshire, and other colleagues and experts in the climate change and historical preservation  fields to assess risk and design adaptation to mitigate potential damage. There is a great deal  The Gables – and the city of Salem – can learn from our colleagues in Portsmouth. 

This event is free, but registration is required.
