Revitalizing Ecosystems in Greater Boston to Survive Climate Change Mass Oyster to Participate in Afternoon Panels

The Massachusetts Branch of the Sierra Club will be hosting an event on Revitalizing Ecosystems in Greater Boston to Survive Climate Change on Saturday March 31.  And MOP will be participating in the afternoon panels talking about our ten years of experience and knowledge about oysters in Boston Harbor.  

Oysters have been proven to reduce wave action and help stabilize coastlines. Many states including Texas, Florida, New York and New Jersey are moving oyster based initiatives forward for this important purpose. 









Here is a bit about the event.

Saturday, March 31, 9 am – 4 pm
Harvard University* Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA
  • Local ecosystems can help us to weather the coming climate shocks.
  • Learn about current efforts and new possibilities to protect and strengthen our local ecosystems.
  • Afternoon workshops on practical ways you can help revitalize ecosystems in our yards, streets, neighborhoods, parks, wetlands and waters.
Featured speaker:
Tom Wessels, author of The Myth of Progress: Toward a Sustainable Future, on
Self-organization, Co-evolution, Resiliency, and Stability
Self-organization is a natural process—that, as a system grows it also becomes more complex. The talk will focus on how this process works in ecosystems via co-evolution to generate the incredible biodiversity we see in nature. Many examples of regional co-evolved relationships will be used to illustrate how co-evolution works. The talk then shows how this process is a wonderful model for creating sustainable human systems.
