Please plan to join us for our monthly program, followed by our business meeting.  Note the new time and place!  The program subject is “Ecological Changes on the Connecticut Coastline”, and the speaker is Juliana Barrett, PhD.  Dr. Barrett is with the University of Connecticut Sea Grant College Program and the Department of Extension.  Her work focuses on climate change adaptation and coastal habitat management working with Connecticut’s municipalities, NGO’s and state and federal partners.  Prior to coming to Sea Grant in 2006, she worked with CT DEP on management plans for state natural areas and for The Nature Conservancy as the Director of the Connecticut River Tidelands Last Great Places Program.  She has a doctorate in plant ecology from the University of Connecticut, and is a co-author of the Vegetation of Connecticut and Salt Marsh Plants of Long Island Sound.

This is sure to be a fascinating and very topical program.  Hope to see you there.
