Throughout September, explore “Climate Conversations” with Barnstable Land Trust (BLT) through walks and talks as well as through art, literature, film, and science programs culminating in a Rising Waters Fish Flags temporary public art installation crafted by community members on Hyannis Harbor on Saturday, September 21. With the goal of inspiring people of all ages to take collective action as we face the climate challenge together, Barnstable Land Trust and its partners are offering over 10 Climate Conversation programs this fall to provide fun and engaging ways to help save our planet and preserve the natural beauty of Cape Cod.  For more information, go to www.blt.org


Fish FlagsRising Waters Fish Flags is the most ephemeral version of Rising Waters. The Climate Creative team determines local flood levels, and provides the materials to assemble 300 fish flags and install them. On the day of the installation, everyone is introduced to the project and local flood issues. The groups gather around tables where they cut beautifully printed fish from large sheets and attach them to the corresponding marking flag. The guided conversation continues, focusing on actions people can take to mitigate or prepare for climate change. Each person writes a climate commitment (action) on their flag. When completed, the group “plants” the flags in the ground in lines that show where future water levels will be.
