Opening Launch of the Resilient Woods Hole Walking Climate Trail
The rustling of fall leaves, a soft winters snow, or gorgeous green leaves and fragrant flowers make walking trails a great outdoor activity any time of the year. On October 30th, ResilientWoodsHole (RWH) has launched it’s new walking trail map called the Woods Hole Climate Walking Trail.
There are 12 stops along the climate walking trail highlighting the vulnerabilities of Woods Hole Village to sea level rise and coastal storm flooding, illustrating town and institution climate resilience planning, and discussing some adaptation solutions to help protect Woods Hole from climate-related impacts.
Not only is it a great source of exercise, but also a great way to learn more about our water shed system and ecosystem in the Village. Take your kids on their day off from school, or wander around on your own free time to learn more about the astounding research regarding climate impact happening in our town.
When you download the RWH app, you hear from leaders in the RWH partner organizations and Woods Hole Village community members discuss their experiences with climate change and learn more about some climate resilience projects that are underway in the Village. This tour also includes a brief history of Woods Hole Village, climate change projections, adaptation solution charts, and current and historic images. Take the RWH Climate Walking Trail today and learn more about climate resilience in Woods Hole.
