“Chatham County’s Resilience Program, in partnership with Georgia Conservancy and the South Atlantic Salt Marsh Initiative, is hosting a public open house to identify opportunities in southeast Chatham to protect and restore coastal marshland with local, historical, cultural, and/or spiritual significance and to discuss ways to make our communities near the marsh more resilient.
“Coastal marshland protects our coastlines from flooding, shields us from storm surges, and provides essential habitat for an entire ecosystem that our fisheries and communities depend on. However, rising sea levels and increasing salinity are going to impact our marsh in the future.
“Georgia Conservancy wants to find places key to conserving our coastal marshland and places with historical, cultural, and spiritual significance that we should protect.
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
