Our connection to the coast has profoundly influenced Massachusetts' history. In this online program, we will celebrate the components, creatures, and relationships that make our coastline vibrant, fascinating, essential, and awe-inspiring. You'll learn about the ecology of several different coastal habitats, including mud flats, salt marshes, and dunes, and the plants and animals uniquely adapted to live there. What's more, unique aspects of coastal habitats are essential for keeping seaside communities safe from extreme weather events, flooding, and other climate-related impacts. We will introduce various tools and solutions available to help protect these habitats, and the wildlife and people who depend on them. You'll leave with a richer appreciation of these areas that you can bring on your next visit to the North and South Shores, Cape, and Islands.
