Woods Hole’s newest attraction aims to teach visitors about the impacts of sea level rise, erosion, and more intense and frequent storms.

ResilientWoodsHole, a collaboration among the village’s science institutions, created a self-guided, 12-stop tour highlighting the most climate-vulnerable spots in the area.

The ResilientWoodsHole Climate Walking Trail opened to the public with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Woods Hole Waterfront Park on Tuesday.

“As many of you know, Woods Hole has a history of being the first in many things,” said Leslie-Ann McGee, director of special projects at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). She addressed a group full of community members, local businesses, and government officials.

“First to explore parts of the oceans, first to research fisheries in the U.S., first to make discoveries on our natural environment, and now the first to identify, analyze, map and create a public trail to explore our climate resiliency, challenges, opportunities and collaborations.” Read rest of the article here.
