Ocean Frontiers II

Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018, 7:00 pm
Ocean Frontiers II;

Nature/Outdoors

Denali, 75 Main St, Old Saybrook, , 06475

Join Denali and the Conservation Commission of Old Saybrook for their Winter Film Series in the Denali community room.

This film explores how off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive. New England’s experiences serve as an important milestone for all of us who care about the ocean.
