A workshop held recently at Town Hall that focused on the impact of sea level rise was unlike previous talks on Block Island because it examined the potential impacts on the island’s inner ponds and wetlands rather than just the beachfront.

The workshop, held on Thursday, September 12, was conducted by James Boyd, Coastal Policy Analyst for the R.I. Coastal Resources Management Council and Pam Rubinoff, Coastal Management Specialist from the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resource Center. They are working in collaboration with other state, federal and private agencies on a project called Beach SAMP, short for Shoreline Change Special Area Management Plan.
