Eastern Shore of Virginia barrier island

Barrier islands and their marshes and bays are home to diverse ecological communities and large-scale infrastructure. Although they are a seemingly permanent feature of our coasts, these islands are among the most rapidly-changing landscapes on earth. No barrier system on the US East Coast changes as swiftly as those found along Virginia's Eastern Shore. Join us as Dr. Christopher Hein shares the geology, human history, and modern change seen along barrier islands in Virginia and around the world. 

This is the September installment of the 2018 After Hours Lecture Series. Reservations to this free public lecture series are required due to limited space. Call 804-684-7061 for further information.
