A year-long collaborative design challenge bringing together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative community-based solutions that will strengthen our region’s resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes.

It’s no secret — climate change is real, and the threats to the Bay Area must be addressed. Sea level rise affects all of us — not just our communities who have lived by our shoreline for decades and are most vulnerable — but also our roads and airports that support each of our nine counties and 101 municipalities, the major companies that serve as the backbone of our economy, and services like water treatment and more.
There’s no time to wait — it’s time to come together and begin imagining a new future for all of us.
Come to join us this Shoreline Walking Tour begins at Pickleweed Park. In honor of Earth-Day, we will look at habitat restoration and sea level rise adaptation strategies along the water’s edge.
Date: Sunday, April 22
Location: Pickleweed Park, 50 Canal St, San Rafael
Distance: 2.5 mile walk
Bring: Water, hat, sunscreen, layers and a snack
