Matt Gerhart of the California Coastal Conservancy and Letitia Grenier of SFEI will be speaking at the SPUR Urban Center about the Baylands Goals and the implications for restoration in the face of climate change. How do we use natural features and natural processes to offer greater protection against rapid climatic changes and sea-level rise? This new report sheds some light on this critical subject:

Sufficient, healthy wetlands, marshes and tidal areas are essential to protecting the region’s many homes and workplaces from future flooding, but our local baylands have been significantly diminished and are threatened by future sea level rise. A new report developed by hundreds of scientists, and led by the California Coastal Conservancy and the San Francisco Estuary Institute, identifies the necessary steps to build and maintain a healthy bay in a climate-changed future. Come hear what they learned.
