The Future Climate: Parks & Nature-Based Adaptation for Shoreline Flooding

October 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| Free
Join us for a conversation about regional shoreline resilience!

As sea levels continue to rise, communities along the shoreline need to adapt to create greater social, economic, and ecological resilience. But what entity is responsible for making the shoreline resilient and what methods should be implemented? Join Greenbelt Alliance for a conversation with The East Bay Regional Park District, the San Francisco Estuary Institute, and WRT Design for a conversation about coordinated effort needed to achieve regional resilience and protect both communities and ecosystems along the East Bay shoreline.

With 55 miles of shoreline, the East Bay Regional Park District is already seeing the effects of sea-level rise in increased coastal and levee erosion and trail flooding and is looking ahead to understand the future changes anticipated along the East Bay shoreline to develop the San Francisco Bay Trail Risk Assessment and Adaptation Prioritization Plan (SF Bay Trail RAAPP). A critical tool for this process is the Adaptation Atlas, a science-based framework for developing adaptation strategies that are appropriate for the diverse shoreline of the Bay and that take advantage of natural processes.

Speakers:

John Gibbs – Principal, Wallace Robert & Todd

Cristina Bejarano – Urban Designer, Wallace Robert & Todd

Chantal Alatorre – Planner, East Bay Regional Park District

Julie Beagle – Deputy Program Director of the Resilient Landscapes Program, San Francisco Estuary Institute

Moderated by Zoe Siegel – Director of Climate Resilience, Greenbelt Alliance
