Minnesota Sea Grant, Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program (DNR), and the Park Point Erosion and High Water Committee are hosting this virtual meeting. These results are part of a larger effort to map erosion hazards on Minnesota’s coast. Minnesota Point was a pilot site for the Coastal Erosion Hazard Mapping project. CEHM is a collaboration between local and tribal governments, state agencies, and researchers. For more information on CEHM, please visit ardc.org/CEHM.
