Preparing for Climate Change


   Preparing for Climate Change

This project is led by a local steering committee including Residents and Town Officials of Hampton, Hampton Falls, Seabrook and members of the Seabrook-Hamptons Estuary Alliance. There is no cost to the communities participating. This project is funded by a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration awarded to the NH Coastal Program. This program is managed by UNH Cooperative Extension, NH Sea Grant, and Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
