November 19th meeting.
  November 19th meeting will present "Lake Erie Bluffs, a Dynamic, Fragile, and Futile Environment" by Jake Moore, Environmental Planner, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Coastal Resources Management Program  

Lake Erieís bluffs are dynamic environments that provide sediment for littoral drift, contain ecologically significant areas, abound with recreational opportunities, and are prime real-estate. As such they provide a unique problem in the form of bluff erosion for developers and landowners. Through observation, monitoring efforts, technical assistance services, and regulatory programs, the PA Coastal Resources Management Program works with landowners, government agencies, and many other organizations to manage Lake Erie bluff erosion. In this talk I will provide an overview of Pennsylvaniaís Coastal Resources Management Program as it pertains to the Lake Erie bluffs.
