You are invited!

Please join us on Monday, September 30th from 5:30-8:00pm

for an important climate adaptation simulation at Wells High School. 

Who: The Town of Wells, in partnership with the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve System and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are co-hosting this community event about how Wells should respond to risks from changes in the climate. 

What: We invite you to participate in a simulation game in which participants work together to discuss local climate change risks and how to prepare for them. Dinner will be provided. Participation is open to the public.

Why: Wells faces challenging decisions about how to prepare for and reduce the potential impacts of climate change, which may include intensified storms and rising sea levels. These impacts could threaten homes, infrastructure, economic stability, and quality of life. This event will help residents explore how to protect their city.
