In June 2017, 200 people gathered at the Weequasett Inn to hear Rich Delany, CEO of the Center for Coastal Studies (CCS) address the risks that climate change pose to the Cape Cod environment. PBCB and CCS co-sponsored the event, which was also the the kick-off for the new organization, the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative (5Cs), formed by twelve Cape-based organizations.
