2022 Annual Meeting:
Our keynote speaker this year was Rich Delaney from the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative who gave a talk entitled Climate Change Impacts & Actions: Around the Globe & the Cape & Islands in which he spoke about how the rapidly changing climate is impacting the Cape & Islands from a physical, economic, health, and environmental justice perspective. Rich was followed up by his collaborator, Owen Nichols from the Center for Coastal Studies and a past Lewis E. Kimball, Jr. scholarship award winner from FCW, who spoke briefly on his current efforts with community-based cooperative fisheries research that focuses on scientific and policy-based solutions to Cape Cod fisheries management. And finally, the annual meeting wrapped up with the FCW Captain’s award being bestowed on long-time FCW member, former president, and waterways advocate Barbara Cotnam. Congrats and thank you Barbara!
