Log Description

The Fore River Sanctuary  Climate Change Observatory site monitors water levels, vegetation changes, subsidence, erosion, and changes in land use over time. The photos taken at this site contribute to a time lapse video that serves as baseline data, and allows for close observation, measurement, and analysis of long-term climate change trends. Help us build a more climate resilient community by contributing photo observations every time you visit and by encouraging others to participate.
