Gibbs Library will be hosting local ecologist Shri Verrill, Sunday, March 7, from 3 - 4 p.m., for an online presentation and discussion about the new Maine Climate Plan. The Maine Climate Council submitted their final plans to the legislature and Governor Mills in December.
Verill’s program will introduce audience members to climate change in Maine, the goals and solutions recommended in the Maine Climate Plan, and what’s needed to put the plan in motion to benefit people and the environment. There will be time for questions following the presentation.
Shri Verrill is a wetland scientist and field botanist with a Master of Science degree in Biology from the University of Maine. Her thesis research focused on coastal salt marsh, estuarine ecology, and tidal restoration as a model for sea-level-rise. Shri has worked with communities in southern, Downeast, and currently, Midcoast Maine to implement fish passage, salt marsh, tidal, and estuarine restoration.
