On Friday, March 22nd, Gloucester High School students will hold presentations on the potential effects of rising sea levels on Gloucester.

Students from the Ecology and Environmental Science classes have spent time this year analyzing storm surge and sea level rise maps to identify vulnerable areas in the city.

Posters and presentations were created to share their findings and raise awareness for the subject. The goal is to share their findings with local citizens and community leaders in the hopes that this will create a productive, solution-seeking dialogue.

The students will present next Friday, March 22nd, from 9:30-10:16 in the GHS auditorium, and will then move to the cafeteria from 10:20-11:00 for a discussion.

All are invited to attend, including students and outside visitors from the community.

This presentation is a part of the “Seeking Relief from Sea Level Rise: Student Mapping and Leadership Initiative”, which is sponsored by the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation and the Gloucester Education Foundation.

The program was also assisted by Liz Duff of Mass Audubon, and Environmental Science and

Ecology teacher Ms. Rachel Rex.

For questions or to RSVP, please contact Ms. Rex by March 20th at: rrex@gloucesterschools.com.
