Science Saturdays are back. Join Lisa Auermuller, watershed coordinator for the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve, at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences on Jan. 19 as she tries to solve the “Coast Resilience Puzzle.” What are the pieces, and how do they fit?

“Jacques Cousteau’s strong partnerships with local communities, state agencies and NOAA's Office for Coastal Management positioned it well to put federal adaptation tools and decision support frameworks to work for the state,” LBIF Membership and Community Coordinator Jillian Schratz explains.

“Lisa brings a unique insider’s perspective to this topic. Since the ‘Getting to Resilience’ technical assistance project launched in 2013, almost 60 New Jersey communities have put it to work as they seek to reduce vulnerability and increase preparedness through planning, mitigation and adaptation.”

LBIF’s informative and interactive Science Saturdays run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Foundation main building, unless otherwise noted. A schedule of all upcoming lectures is available online at lbifoundation.org/science/science-saturdays-3. Presentations will be held every Saturday through April 28, except for April 20.

Admission to Science Saturdays – organized by the LBIF Science Committee – is free for Foundation members at the individual level and above. A $5 donation per person is requested from all other attendees.

The Foundation is located at 120 Long Beach Blvd. in Loveladies.
