Event description

Description

The Delaware Coastal Zone Act (CZA) has been making headlines recently. What is the Coastal Zone Act? What is happening to it?

Join the Delaware Museum of Natural History and Delaware Humanities for a screening of a portion of the documentary An Evolving Legacy: Delaware's Coastal Zone Act. Following the film, we will host a discussion of the 2017 legislative changes to the CZA, featuring three local experts in environmental and water issues followed by a public question and answer session.

Panel Experts:

Jerry Kauffman, Ph.D., Director, University of Delaware Water Resources Center Kenneth Kristl, Director, Environmental & Natural Resources Law Clinic, Delaware Law School Matt Sarver, Ecologist and Environmental Consultant

The panel will discuss the changes to the CZA, what those changes will mean for Delaware's economy and ecology, and how those changes will affect all of us.

The moderator, Lisa Dill, teaches in the Environmental Humanities at the University of Delaware.

Museum doors open at 6:30 p.m. for cocktails and to view the Museum galleries and special exhibits. The film presentation, panel discussion and public and question and answer session will take place from 7-8:30 p.m.

Pre-registration strongly suggested. Walk-in’s welcome if space is available.
