State of the Harbor

The Nantucket Land Council signature summer symposium is the State of the Harbor Forum, scheduled for Tuesday, July 20, 2021.  This year’s event will be a hybrid live + virtual event held at the Nantucket Yacht Club and simultaneously broadcast via YouTube by NCTV18.

As we embrace and expand upon our new Nantucket Waterkeeper role we have launched a campaign on Green Boating Tips for a Healthy Harbor. You may have seen these posted on social media or in one of our e-newsletters this spring. This year the State of the Harbor Forum will be a culmination of this campaign with a presentation and discussion around increasing boat use in our Harbor, resulting effects on our resources and infrastructure, and how we can all participate in preventing or mitigating these impacts on a personal and community level. We hope you will join NLC staff and Nantucket Harbormaster Sheila Lucy for this important Forum. The event will be recorded.

The NLC is proud to present this yearly educational event free for the community as an opportunity to hear about on-going research as well as preservation and protection efforts in Nantucket Harbor. To help us present this symposium free to Nantucket, please consider a sponsorship.  Email meg@nantucketlandcouncil.org for more info.

The NLC’s 4th Annual State of the Harbor Forum was hosted September 24, 2020. Watch the full presentation – The State of the Harbor: Impacts and Implications of a Changing Climate HERE. For this special edition of the forum, we proudly featured our keynote speaker Pulitzer Prize finalist Elizabeth Rush, author of Rising, Dispatches from the New American Shore.

A huge thanks to our 2020 sponsors and supporters Nantucket Shellfish Association and Anderson’s Stillwater Moorings for helping bring this free, educational event to our island community.
