High Tide Here Campaign
Many land trusts are seeking ways to connect with the public about how climate change will affect their communities. A new opportunity for coastal organizations is High Tide Here, a grassroots Maine-based effort to show which areas of our coast are directly threatened by sea level rise.
Supporters have placed blue banners around trees and signs in these areas, to drive home the importance of taking action. Banners have been posted in several towns, including Portland, South Portland, Freeport, and Wiscasset, and they are looking to expand the project statewide, especially on popular recreational lands such as land trust preserves.
