Beyond Sandy is a special series of narrated Hidden Harbor Tours® that focus on the array of global warming and sea-level rise protection schemes being discussed by government, private institutions and citizens.

Some of the ideas being discussed include massive sea gates, building beach dunes, modifying zoning for flood resistance (i.e. move utilities higher), sealing or waterproofing infrastructure (i.e. balloons or gates at tunnel entrances), devise better strategies for toxic materials during a flood, update flood maps & provide interactive projections, build oyster reefs,  soften edges, implement wetlands restoration, establish a regional office of sea level rise, improve fuel delivery and reserve strategies, and much more.
