POSTPONED: Record Flooding Along Lake Ontario
May 12 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
This webinar has been postponed and will be rescheduled for Fall 2020.
Join the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) for this month’s professional development webinar entitled Record Flooding Along Lake Ontario: Approaches to Enhancing Resilience of Coastal Communities!
Lake Ontario communities have experienced record-high flooding, lasting months at a time, two of the last three years. Mary Austerman, Great Lakes Coastal Community Development Specialist at New York Sea Grant, will discuss collaborative efforts that integrated physical and social science to inform the development of tools and resources that can enhance the resilience of Lake Ontario communities. Austerman will also describe how this work fed into a participatory planning process for a Lake Ontario community that, like many others, is vulnerable to repeated flooding events, how this process is being transferred to other communities in the region, and lessons learned.
The EDEN Professional Development committee hosts monthly webinars that provide disaster-related education and training opportunities for Extension professionals. These webinars are open to all Extension professionals regardless of affiliation with EDEN.
