Sunrise Beach – Marshfield, MA

We created this website to inform the community about energy and environmental related issues, events and initiatives.  We are also hosting information about Coastal Planning and Adaptation and the Scituate, Marshfield and Duxbury Sea Level Rise Study. This study will address long range planning for sea level rise and storm surges.
