Author and oceanographer John Englander, author of High Tide on Main Street, will speak Nov. 12 on how coastal communities should brace for the effects of climate change.

CHESTERTOWN, MD—John Englander, one of the nation’s top experts on sea-level rise and its impacts, will speak at Washington College Wednesday, November 12, at 6:00 p.m. in Hynson Lounge.  His topic is “Melting Ice, Rising Seas, & Shifting Shores: The New Normal.” 

Englander is president of Rising Seas Group, Inc. a consulting firm that educates and consults with coastal corporations, government agencies, and municipalities on what to expect from climate change and how to prepare for it.
