You're Invited: Community Field Trip hosted by Kennebunk High School students from The Gulf of Maine Field Studies Class.


When: Sunday, May 15th from 3:30PM-5PM.


Where: 48 Langsford Road


**PARKING POINTERS**

There is no public parking lot in Cape Porpoise so we ask people to find their own parking in spots along the bottom part of Langsford Road or surrounding roads in Cape Porpoise. Carpooling is also a great bet in terms of limiting the amount of cars! Please allow enough time to park and walk so you arrive at the 48 Landsford Road site for 3:30PM!


What to expect: Students in the Gulf of Maine Field Studies class are researching & actively developing solutions to climate change issues impacting our community (such as erosion, sea level rise & invasive species). The class will walk attendees through their fieldwork site on Langsford Road and will share the plans for the living shoreline they hope to create. You will learn in detail about the students' fieldwork from the 2021-2022 school year and leave this event with ways you can be involved and action oriented ideas that can benefit you & the community! Students appreciate all interested attendees in sharing this announcement with others who may be interested. Please bring boots/appropriate footwear for the marsh!

Come meet the Gulf of Maine Field Studies Class students at our Poster Exhibit and Community Conversation on Wednesday, April 13th from 4-6:30pm at Kennebunk High School! We are excited to teach you about the issues we’ve been investigating in our community and the local resources and solutions available to help protect our coastline.

 

Following the Poster Exhibit (in the lobby at 4pm) will be a Community Conversation (in the cafeteria) from 5:30-6:30pm. We will guide you through a reflection and discussion about changes we are seeing in our community and things we can do to ensure a brighter, more resilient, future.
