MoNA panel dives into sea level rise in Skagit County
October 25, 2023
Sea level rise and its impacts to the Skagit will be discussed by scientists at the Museum of Northwest Art Saturday, Oct. 28, 1:30-3:30 p.m. Audience participation is encouraged as part of the “Surge” exhibit.
Topics discussed include sea level rise estimates in the Skagit, hydrological changes and impacts to the environment including birds, salmon and estuarine wetlands, as well as to infrastructure in the Valley. Skagit County has the largest area around Puget Sound at risk from sea level rise inundation. Plans to address these impacts in the County have yet to be developed.
