DENNIS – Rising sea levels will be the focus of a program at Harvard University this month which is a part of the Association to Preserve Cape Cod’s 50th anniversary series.

The collaboration between the Association and the Harvard Museum of Natural History will feature Steven Handel, Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolution, Rutgers University Visiting Professor in Landscape Architecture, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University.

As sea levels rise the potential loss of coastal habitat remains a threat, especially in the eastern United States.

Coastlines are mostly developed along the East Coast which will offer fewer open spaces for habitats to move inland if present natural lands are lost.

Handel will discuss strategies to help maintain coastal character and the ecological services of coastal habitats that are critical to the social, cultural and environmental well-being of the region.

The event Tuesday, February 27 at 6 p.m. at the Geological Lecture Hall on Oxford Street in Cambridge is free and open to the public.

Free event parking will be available at the Oxford Street Garage.

A reception with Association to Preserve Cape Cod Executive Director Andrew Gottlieb will follow the presentation.
