Wicked High TidesAs with other major coastal cities, Boston is confronted with increasing challenges from hurricanes, heightened storm surges and increased flood risks as a result of climate change and sea-level rise.

Join us for an exciting and educational boat tour of Boston Harbor where you’ll see first-hand how the city is working to coordinate both public and private sectors to develop sustainable, value-added solutions that improve the city's ability to manage and plan for anticipated climate change impacts on it’s coastline, harbor and ports. Aboard the ship, we’ll be joined by city officials and a professional tour guide to point out building innovations, historic sites and more as we sail through historic Boston Harbor.

Come equipped with coats and questions and as this relatively informal discussion and tour will give way to networking while taking in the views of beautiful Boston Harbor from sea.
