The League of Women Voters of Calvert County will hold a meeting on Sea Level Rise on Thursday, April 9 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Calvert Library (located at 850 Costley Way, Prince Frederick, MD). This meeting, which is free and open to the public, will address the latest information on sea level rise and its impact on our state and county. “We hope to educate residents on how this specifically impacts Calvert County neighborhoods, businesses and the environment,” notes Lora Harris, event organizer.

Invited experts include: Dr. William Boicourt, Professor of Oceanography at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Horn Point Laboratory; Dr. David Brownlee, Principal Environmental Planner in the Calvert County Department of Community Planning and Building; Ms. Tay Harris, Environmental Planner, Calvert County Department of Community Planning and Building; Ms. Zoe Johnson, Chesapeake and Coastal Service, Maryland Department of Natural Resources and Ms. Kate Skaggs, CoastSmart Communities Planner, Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
