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.
