Connecticut Coast & Long Island Sound: 20,000 Years of Change on Connecticut’s Shores

Wednesday, May 14

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Menunkatuck Audubon on Wednesday, May 14 for CT Coast and Long Island Sound: 20,000 Years of Change on CT’s Shores with Patrick Lynch at 7 p.m. in the Blackstone Library Auditorium.     

Connecticut has some of New England’s most beautiful coastal environments, but our shores and marine environments also face increasing challenges from urbanization, pollution, and climate change. This talk will look at the geology and biology of our coast, and try to place our current challenges within the context of 20,000 years of major changes in our shoreline since it was formed at the end of the Ice Age.

Patrick J. Lynch works at Yale University, and is an author, illustrator, photographer, and digital media expert, and the author and co-author of seven books on natural history, ornithology, and digital media. He is the author of the recent e-book, “Connecticut Coast & Long Island Sound,” available through iTunes. Free and open to the public.  Refreshments served.
