Start 2020 off with an invigorating walking tour of the history and science of the Oakland estuary. Local historian Dennis Evanosky will share the fascinating history of the waterway along the shoreline, where Sausal Creek now flows into the estuary via a culvert. FOSC Education Coordinator Becca Sanchez will discuss how sea level rise is expected to impact our city. This event takes place during one of the King Tides of 2020, and participants are encouraged to bring their camera to help document what our daily tides may look like in the future as a result of a rising sea.

Rain will not cancel the walk–it could make the observations even more interesting!For more information, contact Becca at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 853-3533.
