EcoAdapt, through a grant from the Bainbridge Community Foundation, is undertaking a community survey and conversation to learn what concerns our friends and neighbors with respect to sea level rise on Bainbridge Island and what they see for our future. Please take this survey (it should take no more than 10 minutes) to help get our community sea level rise conversation started! As an incentive, survey participants have a chance to receive one of three $15 gift certificates to the local business of their choice (some restrictions apply).
