Two Free Opportunities to Learn More About Flooding Issues and Solutions

Tuesday September 27 and Thursday October 13 at 6:30pm Virginia Beach Central Library – “Weather It Together – Flood Mitigation at Home”

Listen to Mike Vernon, Owner Flood Insurance Hampton Roads, discuss case scenarios and flood mitigation practices to help protect your home and reduce your flood insurance premiums. Also guest speaker Willie Sparks, with FloARK Squared Planters, discusses FloARK Squared² modular and adaptable cistern system that could collect rain and flood water focused on architectural responses to sea level rise. Get the knowledge and information you need to protect your most valuable asset, your HOME!

 

Wednesday September 28th at 7:00pm ODU University Theater – “Facing the Surge – Documentary and Discussion”

Facing the Surge zooms in on the tangible costs of sea-level rise for the people of Norfolk. But Facing the Surge is not a film about loss and inaction. It tells the stories of citizens from across the United States who are stepping forward to raise awareness and push our political leaders to act on climate change.

You don’t want to miss this opportunity to engage with community members and students about an issue that cannot be resolved without all hands on deck! The event is absolutely free and we will have light refreshments available as well. Free parking is available in parking garage D — Constant Center North Garage at 1060 W 45th Street.

Be a part of the discussion! Join us on Wednesday, September 28th at 7:00 PM.
