Chuey Cazares is part of a large extended Chicano family, living in the tiny hamlet of Alviso. Nestled in between salt ponds, on the southern tip of San Francisco Bay, Alviso is at risk of flooding from both the creeks above and the Bay below. Converting the salt ponds back to their original wetlands could save this town.
The Flood Next Time is the fourth in a web series Bay Nature is showcasing this month about how the Bay Area will fare under rising oceans. The stories were produced by Claire Schoen Media. Check out our interview with Claire Schoen about her work and this project.
