Flooding in the Rockaways: Strategies for Adaptation


What does it mean to call a water-edge city home in a time of extreme weather? How can our communities learn to live with rapidly rising seas? When might retreat make sense? Join us for a screening of short documentary Managed Retreat by Nathan Kensinger, followed by a panel discussion on the flooding challenges the Rockaways face and what we can do about them.

This event is presented by the Climate Museum and the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
