South Beach, Washington, is doubly subject to the forces of water and wind, situated on the most rapidly changing part of the Pacific coastline of the United States and at risk for a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami event. It is also an area of exceptionally rich ecology, including productive fisheries and timber lands. How has this community been formed by this unique environment and learned to live in this dynamic landscape? In this era of climate change, what might other communities learn from South Beach as it continues to adapt to nature’s power?
Join editors Robert Hutchison and Daniel Abramson, and contributors Gregory Hicks (professor of law), Eirik Johnson (photographer), Cory Mattheis (architect), Skip Swenson (policymaker), and Barbara Swift (landscape architect), as they share findings and highlights from their American Roundtable report Dynamic Landscapes. Their informal presentation will be followed by discussion on some of the report’s key ideas and provocations with American Roundtable Project Director Nicholas Anderson and League Executive Director Rosalie Genevro. Read the full “Dynamic Landscapes” report on South Beach, Washington, beginning February 16.
Attendees will not be visible or audible during the webinar but may ask questions via the Q&A function.
