Changes in Great Lakes water levels directly impact coastal communities. When these changes dramatically differ from recent levels, the impact can be even greater. What can communities do? Where can they turn for information about these changes?

Join us to see some of NOAA’s work to improve understanding of impacts from water level fluctuations. Brandon will offer resources to communities with the goal of building understanding of the complex relationship between coastal communities and water level changes.

Twin Ports Climate Conversations

Twin Ports Climate Conversations offer community dialogue engaging in questions of climate change. We cover different topics monthly, focusing on perspectives of climate change impacts, adaptation responses, and opportunities for mitigation and resilience. These conversations are organized, coordinated and facilitated by staff from multiple agencies. You are invited to join the conversation. More about TPCC.
